    The whole helmet looks crooked. I´m not really experienced in M38´s but judging by the irregularities on the surface i would say its a real overpainted relic?
    Maybe it was bend while it was in the ground or something like that.

    Restored ?
    Don't let that restorer near anything worthwhile restoring !

    You know I never thought it would be possible to reduce the value of a relic helmet. But that restorer has I think achieved it.

    I hate being critical over anybody's restoration work, but to be brutally honest... that looks truly dreadful.

    Cheers,
