I was walking around this dusty antique store and found a French Adrian helmet sitting up on a shelf amongst some random naval wares. It was pretty badly rusted, had no liner, and no sort of steel emblem on the front like most Adrians I've seen. Perhaps it's not even French, but since I didn't see any identifying features, I can only assume. It was priced for 25$.
Do you guys think it's worth it? From what I remember, the sling mounts were rusted in place, but overall it could probably be cleaned up with a sander and some WD40. It has a heavy dent on the left side that seems to give it a nice history. I'll take some pictures on my next trip - I made sure to stash it somewhere safe.
Is it worth picking up? And in terms of resale value, is it best to sell it as-is, or with a new paint job? Where would I find a liner for this old boy?
