Look at the natural ageing. It's milk chocolate in color.

Nice piece. I have seen Prussian cork helmets but never with the metal trim both around the front visor and read neckguard. That is certainly fairly unique.

Very nice catch 👍🏼

There is no metal trim around the rear neck guard (visor) on this helmet.
What appears to be metal trim is actually green leather which is sewn on.
A good explanation is shown here:
