    To save you some money Mick, why don't you just post the one you've just bought to my address, then I can have all the embarrasing ones at my place. An asylum for embarrassed helmets.

    Here's one with what looks like 455, but whether they are numbers or letters it should stand for the steel batch number.
    Any faults can be traced to these numbers/letters.
