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

    Default Don't know the type

    Hi all,

    I got this helmet from the fire dept of my village.
    It was painted red after the war and used then as a fireman's helmet.

    It was made in 1938 (print in the other side of the leather inside)
    There is a mark on the inside of the helmet. It says:
    1938 Beschaffungsamt für Heer und Marine

    Does anybody know what kinr of helmet it is?
    And how can I get the red paint of without damaging the original paint?


    Thank you ,

    its an M35 helmet & you could either try paint stripper or acetone but do a patch test first to see which your more comfortable with to use

    also as the red paint on yours dosent seem very thick you wont need to leave on there for very long but as i said if unsure do a patch test first

    No it's not the only one. I have a 2 piece Gladiator Luftschutz helmet (also red). I scraped the red paint on the emblem with a kind of blade.
    And the fire dept of my village have more. much more. You know, I live in a small village in Bavaria (Suzberg). And I think they used the old war helmets only here as helmets for the firemen.
