    200.00 is a fair price considering the condition has you stated. I would not do much if anything to the helmet, the liner is very fragile and looks to be blood rot. Be careful with it.

    Thanks for the reinsurance on what I paid. For having somewhat the decal left, and I figured it was a K.I.A helmet, 200 was ok + shipping. I wont touch the liner at all but maybe see if I can remove some rust, I don't know how to go about doing that. Probably just leave it. Thans again for your input.

    Hi, I'm not keen on the "naming", looks like a permanent marker has been used? Leon.

    I can't tell either. I was wondering the same thing. I have to get it in my hands to really see it

    So with the blood stain issues, to keep it stable just leave it the way it is?

    Leave it alone and it will be fine.

ID:	893537I just got the helmet in. The signature looks good and it was a paint, not a marker. I noticed if you look real close you can see the vets name and his serial number and regiment. Hard to read at a glance but I made out 53rd . Wanted to share. NOt bad for a couple hundred
