Thanks.
I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to restoring a helmet and would prefer it got to a collector who can do it right rather than part it out for more $.
A tad lost on the last comment, about what I am expecting to get for it?

No problem! Thought I'd miss spoken somewhere! Yes, I would like to get the most I can out of it and not interested in giving it away! But would MUCH rather it go to someone who can restore it than part it out or wreck it by attempting to restore it myself. No clue what it will bring. But appreciate everyones help here!
