The aluminum helmet shields retain basically all of the finish. The olive-green leather rim wrapping is fully intact. The original, matte leather chinstrap is present, and in excellent condition. The dome portion of the inner shell is lined with dusky red felt. The underside of the brim is lined with green wool that is very good with some minor tracking.
