Response to Restoration vs conservation

A parallel consideration to the restoration vs conservation discussion is the extent of ones collection.

A number of people on this board have multiple examples of helmets -- in this case, we'll reference the B-Types.

If you already possess a modified B-Type, you're likelihood of modifying a helmet is probably less than that of someone who has only one unmodified helmet and very much wants the "as-used" stereotypical example. This is, of course, a gross generalization but my point is that if you have 3 or 4 helmets, you've likely purchased an unmodified helmet so that you have one rather than needing a project.

At the end of the day, however, the owners of the helmets are free to do whatever they want with them.
