    Default Mk.II 2C helmet for review

    Hi everyone, picked this Joseph Sankey & Sons lid up recently and would appreciate a second opinion on the stenciling.
    might just be me but the paint doesn't look quite right.

    plus and any ideas on what the ASM may be for?

    And thirdly this is missing its liner, worth replacing or leave as is?

    thanks for your time!
    kind regards
    Ed

    Looks great to me, R for Rescue, ASM, haven't a clue, but makes it a lot more interesting.

    Really down to you, monetary wise,helmet with liner would be worth about 45. An Mk2 liners going to be 20ish.

    Looks fine to me. As already stated, add a liner if your keeping it or can get one cheap, otherwise leave it as is.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    not sure if i'm keeping or not at the mo, depends if the wife notices it.
    we have a rule, if she doesn't spot it for 2 weeks, its a keeper.

    My wife takes months to notice sometimes, but with the bigger items she always spots them sooner or later.

    ASM = Armstrong Siddeley Motors ? Coventry based so not far from you.
    I guess they would have their own rescue party.
