Simply store it in a place that is dry (read, < 50% RH), with consistent temperature.
It will be fine. Some folks will recommend RenWax and other stuff, but it has been fine for 75 years - why mess with it?

I have a 3rd ID from the vet.It is as I bought it from his house hold auction.Untouched.
People ask what are the rarest WW2 helmets...basically the untouched,unmessed with kind.

I agree with everything that has been stated! Don't do a thing to it. So many things have been messed with over the years. It's better to just leave it the way you found it. Any chance we can get more pics of the lid? You rarely see 36th div helmets.

As a collector myself, to me you would devalue the helmet, not increase its value by cleaning it.
