    poor bugger, strip it back and display it as a relic, It has it's own story rather than being mutton dressed as lamb!

    You could always put it in the "genuine fake helmet" display. : )

    It would make a nice conversation starter nonetheless, lol...

    I haven't much experiance in ID-ing a real from a fake,but this one is a easy job.
    Put it in a bucket of Natrium Hydroxide for a day or 2, it will get rid of that horrible paintjob and the oil at once, maybe also the helmet.(problem solved )
    It could be restored to relic state...

    i would say give it ago with some paint stripper on a small patch somewhere to see if you can find out the actual condition of the shell you may be surprised as to what could be lurking under there & then go from there if it is an original relic condition shell 40 aint to bad of a price to have paid
