Leave it as is imo. Seal it in a plexi box used for football helmets and it won't deteriorate anymore.
Looking for following WWII German items:
- anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
- entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
- forestry and hunting items,

Ok thank you.
Also cause I bought this helmet years ago, I forgot what kind it is.. Is it a M40 with field gray paint???? Thanks again
Yes its a M40 and I agree with what was mentioned about leaving it alone. The damage to the shell from an obvious bullet tells the story and the corrosion that formed on it when it fell should not be changed in anyway.
