    Default questions about an M35

    Hi...
    I buyed this one once for a few euros:

    Shall I clean it? Won't I damage it too much?
    Do you think the hole in the back is a bullet hole?
    Is that stuff on the front right side the remainig camouflage net?

    Thanks

    No, do not clean it!

    looks like a true battlefield pick up

    my guess is it has damage from artillery or mortar blast?

    Well, actually there is some kind of exit hole. look at the picture.
    It could be possible that the head stopped the bullet a bit and then it only hit the other side of the helmet. During the years, the rust made a hole through that weak spot of the helmet. ( sounds ghoulish )
