    Hi , it's not one I would pursue personally , the 7 in the inscription appears to be painted on top an established rust spot. Leon.

    The marking inside was made by a little boy? I don't like such beautiful stories.

    It looks to me that it was just a beat up helm on the outside that was painted over and artificially aged. Just my 2 cents.

    This helmet was discussed previously on this thread: Winter helmet Named SS - Roster help?

    A site search here for "okinawarelics" brings up a number of other items associated with the same vendor.
