Unidentified eagle on helmet?!
in post soviet countries were very popular in barns, old houses- using german inventory for home usage. For example this helmet used as holder for nails.
helmet is painted with common soviet floor paint. and other something like silver colour.
after i get this helmet, i started to clean it, by taking of old paints.
under the floor paint, pops out such a eagle/
question- is this eagle related to german, or its somebodies childhood own painting, childhood local war games

I think someone tried to get artistic at one stage .
at the present it's such. comming up original green colour, but still necessary to clean.
method- technical hairdryer & halmet stays in earth under the rain.
A time consuming project, I'm glad you have the patience for it.
Well done, keep going, it is looking better every day! Leon.
