    How should one go about to to make their Curassier helmet have a better finish.

    Try brake cleaning fluid found at most car part stores.

    First time I've seen.

    Looks very nice but they are asking twice what the helmet is worth in my opinion.

    Issue Helmet M60 M67

    It looks like it started life as a Garde helmet . Then had the visors swapped from front to back and became a fireman's helmet with many plate changes.

    Hey Brian, this ones for you!

    In order to get " real period brass" find an old fireman's helmet the comb to be specific. It s made of the same period brass and you can find them cheaply.

    Having problems

    Yes indeed. I hand a mint Baden M-15 with a nice creamy colored interior shell that had a walnut sized dent in it. I figured no harm in wetting the area with a little water and push the dent out. The area turned black !!!! I should have left it alone.
