    Good news! I have received an email from my mail forwarding people informing me that the visor has reached my UK forwarding address! Hence I can expect delivery most likely on Sunday!

    Well the visor has arrived but alas, I cannot see any logo under the sweat diamond.

    A clear '7' stamp, is that a size indicator? Also a hand written '9', what could that be? (I checked your book Tony but no clues there for me I'm afraid)

    Interesting, thank you for the information.

    Can I ask, with the complete lack of makers marks, what pins this visor as being made by Erel?

    Look further into the edges of the lining and you will see some red (probably) pencil marks at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions.
