A neat helmet due to the fact that there is a second diamond that’s been painted over on the back. I wonder if the original wearer painted it on, then realized he painted it on the back, because the seam was there and decided to paint a new diamond on the front. There is a possibility you can removed the first layer of paint to expose the second diamond if you know what you are doing. The front diamond is outlined in black and there is a strip of dried black tape or adhesive that looks like it is from the period. Remnants of it on the reverse as well. Not sure what it’s from. The shell has a few dents in the top and no liner. Marked ZE31 under the front brim.
