    looks like it, but im not sure theres even an eagle under there, why the raised areas, besides it looks like a black helmet which could be post war

    Paint job looks like it was done about a week ago after someone had finished decorating the house !!

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    Yikes. Looks like it could have been a post war fireman helmet with the black interior.

    Actually it was fairly cheap <$100. It is a Q66, but the lot # begins with a T. I think this helmet would be a good paint stripping project.
