Restore or not restore, that's the question....

Hello Forum-Members,
as you know I'm relativly new in this Forum and maybe you've read my introduction of my first Helmet last Month.
The Pickelhaube was already repaired in the imperial Time, but I could kick myself because I destroyed a small repaired soldering when I've took the Eagle-Plate off :cry:
What do you think about repairing this soldering? Would you repair it again or leave it as is? Does this re-opened crack have a great influence of the worth of the Helmet?
Thank you for your comments :)
