NO mold, mildew, smell, drying, brittle leather or anything else wrong!! This helmet is in such beautiful condition it is almost like new. The leather is still amazingly soft and supple.
The inside suede is incredibly soft. There are no marks indicating this was issued to anyone ever!
Look at the picture of the back of the helmet, there is a small area that is slightly faded to the left and right of the seam, probably how it was stored in the box, these may have been fold lines. Probably could easily buff out with the correct product, but I didn't want to use the wrong thing on this so I did not touch it.
