    Hello. Here is a terribly damaged SS Helmet. You can barely see the decal and it doesn't have a liner or anything inside. All this being said, is it worth $100 USD? I'd like to buy it because there's no way I can afford one of these in mint condition. What do you think? Thank you!

    Looks very suspicious, decal applied over pitting etc. I'd walk away.

    Hi , not one for me.I do not like the way the decal rests on the rusted shell , I think this has been artificially aged all over in a tank of fluid to give the impression of a ground dug relic. Leon.

    A closer photo of the decal is needed to assess exactly what has gone on with this lid as with all helmets !!
