    I have never seen one before, probably rather rare.

    the shell looks like a dutch one for some reason because it has no visable chinstrap rivets and the rim is smaller on the dutch one than the British one ( i know because iv got a dutch one and a British one )

    IIRC, these were made by the Louis Marx toy company in the 1920s. I have one in my collection (note to self...need to photograph this one) and have seen quite a number of them in various paint schemes.
