    Default ACME Private Purchase

    Very similar to the compressed fibre made Cromwell helmets, this one made by ACME has the top part made of metal.Presumably to give better protection.
    Apart from the ACME PROV. PATENT there are no other markings that I can see, liner is very similar to the Mk2 liner with just a few subtle differences.
    The chin strap is made of leather.
