Hi fella's, I have seen one or two of this particular factory's MKII helmets come up for sale over the last few months but they have all been a touch pricey! This one however was reasonable so I have just bought it. It looks to be in good order , I do not know what date it is yet as the "ad" did not state it. A quick "google" of trade marks brought up that "BATTERY SYMBLEM" was a Birmingham factory that made batteries and metal components. I hope you like it, Leon.
