Default FJ M38 helmet shell

I don't see any problems but before sending to e-stand I would like to receive your official confirmation.
Size ET71, serial number is not visible. For me typical oryginal barn find with the rest of the camouflage visible.
Regards,
Piotr

Looks good to me . Interesting how worn the inside is compared to the outer shell.

It was probably laying upside down all these years with moisture laying inside.

And a thicker layer of paint helped to preserve the outside from rust

Yes, each additional layer of the paint helps preserve outer better.. and the main trouble of all ground/barn find para helmets is the rubber pad which keep humidity for very long time and once it became wet almost impossible to dry it if helmet still keeps in bad condition, so inner surface usually heavy rusted because of influence of wet pads especially in places where they conact to the shell..
