    Default Silver pins B&C1943

    I've never seen such pins before. They are covered with some silver layer (not a paint). Could they be originally made like this? they are marked: B&C 1943. What kind of helmet could they be attached to? I thought to remove this silver layer, add some rust and attach them to one of my semi-relic m42. What do you think?

    It is possible to remove the plating: see the restoration forum for details. Search "chrome".

    Cheers, Ade.
