    Default British WW2 helmet bought for $25,original?

    Hey guys, am pretty new to forum and am asking for thoughts on this helmet. Paid $25 at military swap meet like 2 years ago and am wondering if it is original and if it was good deal? $25 seems good price if original to me, even if a common helmet. Also the guy I bought from had price sticker stuck to inside of lid which didnt come off in one piece. Some of its still stuck to lid. Suggestions on how to remove w/o damaging? Thanks for any help!

    Lemon juice should remove the sticky residue without damage.

    You can straighten out the liner bands pretty easy as well, just by getting them damp (spritz with a spray bottle) and forming over a bowl of the correct size. The foam rubber cross piece, that is missing from the inside crown, can be replaced with a Brit MKII piece you can usually find on eBay pretty cheep.
