    Alright, so: It's a front seam helmet. The cork used on it probably was just larger than normal, or it has been resprayed and recorked (which it kinda looks like it).

    Further thoughts and opinions are welcome, as I am a starter in the American helmet collecting, knowledge, etc!

    Repainted/Recorked most likely as the corking is way too sparce,to be factory appied.

    my guess it could be refinished in the 1970's 1980's
