    I have a chance to buy this helmet for $67 incl shipping, but the only reason i am considerit is because it seems that under the rust there may be a hidden bird in the 1st photo. Any opinions are much appreciated!

    all the best,
    Stefan

    There might be but it is pretty much oxidized and powdered now.

    I agree with Doug, i think any attempt to see what is there will result in more corrosion being stripped away and the helmet becoming more unstable

    As I think the best result will be 10% of paint, that white spots for me looks like dust from something, but not decal, you can see it also near pin.

    Can't see a decal there just some sort of white staining , playing with this one could result in it coming apart the metal is looking very thin !!

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
