    What do you estimate the size of those numbers?

    I think they are too small for a US heat stamp...

    The heat stamp numbers look too small to be USA. They are larger on McCord shells and on Schulter also.

    The bales dont look US. They are reverse put on, suggesting a euro clone of LS, ulbrich of vdn make. However since it’s magnetic it is most likely not. Some say there are magnetic helmets by theses makers, I never seen then though. Much more likely it’s a diaward steel works helmet (Hong Kong) or a Thai make. Probably more Southeast Asia countries that made them also. They all used these bales, and where all magnetic, shell, rim, bales.
