Hi Graham, we have had original decals for sale in the past, but most people just buy them for their collections and not actually to add to helmets. I have heard if you try to add them to a helmet they tend to break up because of their age.

If the shield is original, I would not do anything, just leave it as is. There are original shields still left over, but no longer useable.
