This is an exceptional helmet with some very interesting details to it. The helmet itself is in great condition with no dents or cracks. It retains a very nice original paint finish and has the five pointed star affixed tightly. The outside of the helmet still has United States Postage stamps from when it was sent home. The interior of the helmet has a very nicely intact with an original liner complete with chinstrap. It also shows many hand stitched markings throughout. Another interesting thing with this helmet is that it definitely shows blood staining to the one side of the liner and on the chinstrap. Overall this is one great piece and would make a very nice addition to any collection.
