Finding this type of helmet with decals is rare,it is a late war made shell.
WW2? Yes, do not mess with it, it is OK as it is. History speaks for itself. Leon.

OK Leon,I Leave it but worth $100 I assume
Also have you guys notice the factory defect on it
I'll bite the rim split? agree with Leon leave be,, otherwise its a parts job.
Eric, look closely at the vent holes you see it
Incorrectly placed vent hole ?
I'd be inclined to leave it be as well. For one, is it even the
