    Looks like a German Police Motorcycle Helmet, maybe 1960's, cant think off hand where the crest is from but other more knowledgeable members will be able to inform you of that

    Ewan,

    I drive past the crest on the A2 every time I go to our warehouse in Beliefeld. I will take note next time.
    The Germans have these crests displayed as you leave one county to the next.

    Ewan Stirling, jock auld, indeed as Solderblu states German Polizie motorcycle crash helmet as worn well into the eighties before many Police depts in Germany adopted the BMW 'System' helmet, this one belongs to member of the Lower Saxony Police,West Germany, (Niedersachsen).
