    There is asbestos in the last version of the brodie's liner, but it is a very small percentage and is impregnated into cloth, if you don't mess with it, it is not a problem.

    A good score of the lid and best IMFO to leave the decal on it.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    That is definitely worth the money you paid. I also agree with the others as far as keeping the VFW decal on it. That helmets has been there and done that and then was paraded down the avenue in some town worn by a veteran that has also Been There and Done That!!! It would be a great tribute to all involved.

    Nice lid, great pick up and, like everyone else, personal opinion, I would leave the decal in place.

    Thanks guys just paid the seller for it and decal will stay on helmet, he listed it in the title as a veteran of foreign wars helmet so that's why it didn't get any attention I bidded on it with 4 hrs left and set my max at $30 and startimg bid was $5 and I was the only bidder up until
    Last few seconds of auction end so it goes on the shelf and my grandfather and my dad were both VFW members so it will honor all vets including myself
