Don't know the type

Article about: If I rub that helmet with a cloth with acetone, firstly little spots of the red paint vanish. So I have to continue with rubbing. But when I do that, I rub away the original colour in those

    You may have a nice diamond underneath that red paint Please repost a new photo after you have stripped the red paint off.

    Please read the link wolfman has provided.

    Well a lot of them are not old war helmets I think. They are made after the war especially for the fire dept. You know...they have surely about 60 to 80 helmets. I searched those huge boxes for a while. After 5 minutes I found the old war helmets. But I have not seen all of them. So it's difficult to guess how much war helmets they have.

    Where can I get such a paint stripper?

    Any "DIY" store which sells paint will sell paint stripper which you can use ok on these. But beware it WILL take off the decals too.

    OK... I tried it with acetone. I put with an old paintbrush the acetone on the helmet. (only on a part of it) I waited for a couple of minutes, and then I tried to scrape with a plastic scraper. Then I recognized that I scraped also parts of the original paint:

    How can I only remove the red paint. Is it right to use such a scraper? How do you do it?

    if your using acetone i personally would use a cloth dipped in it & gently work away at a small area at a time no need for scraping then

    I did... and there the acetone removed the original black paint , as well.

    so I'll try it with a piece of cloth.....
    Or could it be that those scrapes were in it before they painted it red?
