It is a good one.
Any tips on what to do with the mildew on the liner? The leather is actually in very good shape and supple.
Some guy posted an answer some time ago about a product he used on old Jaguar cars. Maybe he will chime in.
That looks good.I'd love to find one of these.I cant help with the markings i'm afraid.
As for the mildew, give it a wipe with a damp sponge or cloth and let it dry.Looks like it just got damp at one time.
You picked up a nice helmet there, i like the paintwork plenty left on it as said give the mildew a wipe over it should be ok after that. Well done wish i could find one over here in that condition.
Thanks for the kind words, everyone!
I looked up "Chorazy" and four matches popped up... However, none seem to match. Maybe the original order of this helmet was in the Navy?
I really like these, and this one is an excellent example. Jim G.
very nice US helmet - now the fun starts with the research of the markings - good luck (meant in a good way)!
