    A nice score James.

    As regards Marks question I think most are the normal rimmed type.

    James the paint on the exterior appears to go right to the outer edge of the rim so it either is a rimless and or was repainted period.

    I agree with Mark , I do not think this ever had a rim James. Leon.

    It is probably one of the rimless BMB made examples which often have it stamped into the rim somewhere.

    Perhaps we will have to start a thread on AFS/NFS helmets to go with those for Wardens and Police that we have yet to start.
