The helmet shows lots of use and wear, but displays very well. There is quite a bit of paint loss to the shell, but this is all obscured by the early blumentarn camo cover. As a bonus, the helmet appears to be named, but i can't maker it out. All of the leather has some stiffness, but it is not brittle.
The helmet currently wears like a 7 3/8. This is a great looking early helmet with a rare cover to boot.Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
