Outer has numerous scratches & abrasions & the original dark green paint is visible in many areas. Outline of the single decal to the left hand side clearly visible but has not been uncovered. One large dent (approx 30mm in diameter) to the front section of the helmet and 2 small holes approx 5mm in diameter and 30mm apart to the rear upper shell. Holes possibly made by projectiles or shrapnel. Inner shell has the remains of original green paint, now faded. Some surface rust. Partly obscured maker and size marking to left hand inner flare. Possibly SE64? Leather liner dry and soiled. No drawstring or chinstrap. An interesting piece sure to attract attention. Great item for a display of WW2 combat items. Grade III- (P)
