Restoration or no

Question for the restoration specialists.
I got this pickelhelm today. Is it even possible to repair it? Or is the effort too high? I won't do anything myself. Or is it better to gut them and sell the individual parts

The good thing is the leather is dented not torn.
With a little time moister and head form these dents can be taken out.
The liner looks to be in great shape it would be a shame to part the helmet out
In my opinion
 
Hello,
this helmet is complete and in good condition (apart from the dents). You should definitely keep it that way. Above all, don't dismantle it and scatter the trim around in spare parts.
2 solutions:
---Or keep it like this.
---Restore it or have it restored. A cobbler, or a good handyman like Wodjek, will be able to restore it to its original shape quite easily.
