    Good original item.

    It is Prussian.

    The stamp is BA iV. Please see here:

    Here's your maker mark:

    "A. Pb. Hoffmann--Berlin" ink stamped inside the helmet shell.

    Maker is: Adolph Hoffmann --Berlin

    As far as cleaning it goes, I would simply use a clean dry terrycloth bath cloth or hand towel to lightly rub off any excess dust and grime. Other than that, it looks good.

    Congratulations on a very nice flea market find!

    Best Regards,

    Alan
