    I'd still put the EGA to the front of the helmet for display.
    The light 'beach' side is what I'd show as well.........!
    Regards,

    what ObKrieger said

    what i will say is that there has been speculation as to whether EGA stamped covers were used during WW2 but the only pictures provided as proof were to poor a quality & the marks on the covers where the EGA might have been was explained away as either shadowing or dirt ?
    They are pretty sexy.
