    The helmet shell, paint, liner and flaming bomb insignia are all correct. Somebody had affixed a fake tricolor, but Chris did a fairly good job removing that. It is too bad that the split rivets are gone, but I suspect it was the vet that installed the screw back insignia in their place, and I think that adds a lot of character to the piece. If it were mine, I would leave the replacement "rivets" as is, although it is certainly possible to replace them with original split pins. It is a rare piece. Nice pickup! Jim G.
