    Welcome to the forum! As for value, it's worth as much as someone would pay for it IMO. Goodluck

    It looks like the decal is applied over pitting to me. I wouldn't go for it. Also looks like a Quist shell, and doesn't really look right for a Quist decal from the shape.

    As collector provenance is important may I ask how did you acquire the helmet 16 years ago? The decal is so far gone that with 99% of SS relics I see photos of its impossible to give any kind of opinion but your photos of the decal are lacking in clarity. Take macro shots (flower icon) of the decal and make sure they are without flash glare and are in focus, thanks.
