    Default post war civil helmet ?

    just to share this unusual zuckerman style resin laminated helmet ,this style is more reminicent of the us m1 liner in manufacture ,the shell is embossed texolex ,would this be an american shell ,the liner is british and is dated 1954 ,no chinstrap present if if ever there was one fitted ,there is a thick adjustable nape strap so i can only compare to a modern day hard hat ,and can only presume offered bump protection for some use ,any help would be great guys Click image for larger version.

    Very nice James,can't help but think where they got the idea from,so similar to the US 1930 MSA skullguard safety helmet made of fibreglass,with exactly the same liner,many differant versions have been produced and at 100 years young are still turning these safety/workmen hats out,thanks for showing something a bit differant Bud..............
    With Regards Jake.

    I would imagine that helmet would appeal to someone interested in the history of mining. It really is a cracking looking helmet. Any signs of a bracket for a lamp being fixed to it at any time?
