Another relic found in France


Recommended Posts

Right from France. My bet is that the helmet had a medic panel that was painted over for camo reason...

 

Very far from mint but a true combat veteran lost for years...

Looking for items named to PFC John Surin (WWII-Army) or Anton Freitag (WWII-Navy).

Nice shell! I really like relic lids that still have some evidence of markings on them!

There's something about the pigment with red paint that can often do strange things when exposed to time and the elements. I have a very nice WWI helmet and the red painted numbers are almost black now but the rest of the paint is still visible. This 'might' be the case here (?)

Very Nice helmet Sgt!

and your pictures are excellent! :thumbsup:

 

Thanks a lot. I am very found of these old rusted and long forgotten relics. Their lost but real history background make them, in my humble opinion, a lot more interesting and valuable than mint, unused and unissued helmets. :think:

I am also trying in getting better picturing my collection as even piece of junk looks more attractive when they are well photographied. (Contrary is also true)

 

Cordially.
