Thank you for your comments Gentlemen !

I would like to preserve the leather of the liner. What should I use ?

Thank you,

Francis

Francis, please leave it as it is. There's nothing wrong with the leather after 100 years, why would you put something on it and let it become darker (read "less original")?

I agree with Adler, as long as the helmet does not stand over a heatsource like a mantelpiece ,
or in a humid place, the leather will not deteriorate. So i.m.o. ,there is no need for treatment.
