    Man if these Helmets could talk, it would be an amazing story!!! My brother is working in Russia, I told him to pick me up some relics, and within two weeks I was on a plane to pick them up. He said they were dug up last year, 40 miles outside of Moscow. I think they are awesome, and yes one is completely destroyed. I think that was army group C in the center right? Anyways check it out and I hope you like it.
    Thanks

    I think oxidation did the most damage here.

    Is it just me, or does the first helmet (more intact one) look like it has no vent holes on it? or is it just covered by rust? Myabe its an M45/Ventless M42 helmet? just an idea

    Thanks for showing

    The more intact one after checking it out does of vent holes, but they are flush with helmet due to the major rust. Yeah after you wrote that I had to double take on it. hahah
