Indeed a cool finding. Albeit a matter of a personal taste, I smile a bit when some collectors do not like collecting 62 size.
they were much more common than what we think.

Great score! Be careful with the chinstrap. It looks like it's starting to tear. I would loosen it over the brim.

As for wiping the helmet with a dry rag. No harm done imo. Dirt is not patina. Your helmet has the perfect amount of patina on it!

Thanks,, I guess your right about wiping the dirt off, it just scares me sometimes to think if it is caked on it might damage the original paint job/decals...
Yes, this is the 4th helmet I have aquired by my friend in the demo
business,
Van
