    Chin Strap still flexible, liner is hardened and cracked.

    What would be the the proper way to clean and maintain?
    Best regards,
    Robert.

    Looks like it was refurbished in the early 50's as it has a post war liner in which looks to be dated 1949. Hard to tell whether the paint is post war too but not necessarily so.

    The liners I use for reenactment get some hand cream and water to moisturize them. I'd leave it as it is, looks like it doesn't need any treatment.

    After a thorough check - yes, liner is 1949 and not 1940 (stamp D.P.E.C.). Paint has rough, sand paper like structure. Is this brown color typical for such helmet?

    I don't want to embellish it. Actually I would like to remove only the black ring (3rd Photo), which is probably formed when helmets were stacked one on one another / rubber coating from liner - or should i leave this also as it is (top Picture)?

    Dark brown was the standard colour from about 1941 ish, the stacking marks are quite common, but I've never removed one.
