Hello everyone!

I am in possesion of an old stahlhelm (I searched on the internet and I think it could be an Austro-Hungarian M1917), which was found a couple of decades ago in an attic... before it has been used as a flowerbox (!!) for many years - given that the village where it was used was on the frontline between Italy and Austria, and so after the war those helmets were very easy to found around.

 

As you can see in the pictures it has been repainted, but the big problem is that inside it is in horrible conditions; I would like then to remove at least the rust and maybe restore it as far as it is possible... Do you think it would be possible?

Thank you very much!
