    Question Rate my shell + some input

    My first proper post. A recent find, Quist "Q66" with what could be an "R" for Stahlwerk Roechling proceded by a "616" numerals; the phone camera really doesn't pick it up well at all. Do these rolling numbers mean anything important?

    Unless my eyes are deceiving me, there appears to be a good amount of the Imperial green paint still present. Some minor spots of rust; what methods do you use to "kill", clean, or halt any further rusting?

    You have a very nice M16 shell that from what I can see has not been messed with.

    The "roll numbers" are just a steel Lot #. Nothing of real importance.

    On this helmet, don't touch it. No waxes, varnishes, treatments or anything. It's a solid shell and any "rust" is not active and minimal at best.

    Hope I look this nice at the ripe old age of 105!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    She'll be a shelf baby for good!

    Looks like a nice original helmet.

    Nice find. As already said it needs nothing other than an occasional dusting.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, as already stated by MAP, a nice M16 shell in original condition. Despite the lack of liner, it has a beautiful patina with lots of original paint that should be left as is. Congratulations and welcome
