I believe this is a fairly recently made reproduction. The face part does not lift up. I picked up the helmet a couple of years ago and have had it sitting around my house on display. When I got it, it did have some foam pieces taped inside to make it more comfortable to wear but I removed them after I got the helmet home.It is not safety gear. There is some general wear on the helmet so just keep that in mind and review the pictures. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Knives, Swords & Blades\Armor & Shields". The seller is "grantsstockmarket" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
