    Jim, great helmets ! your Garde helmet looks to be depot refurbished helmet as I can see a stencilled "62" on the inside rear skirt, usually applied to a helmet after the re finish of a helmet by the repair depots....and of course as if you didnt know, but for the casual viewer of this thread, "B.F." is the mm for "F.C.

    Again great helmets, thanks for showing.
