I could see in many offers that seller, which sell his M-1 helmet, wrote: "helmet is a barn find" or "helmet was found in a barn". I know that many sellers wrote it to their offers because their offers "look better", but I believe, that some helmets could be really found in barns. So there is my question - what is the reason, that anybody left helmet in a barn (complete helmet, no just steel lid which was used by farmer as a tool)? This is because farmer found helmet in his field and brought it to his barn like a souvenir or that there were aid stations in barns, etc.
Thank you f
