    Default SS Helmet identification and appraisal #1.... help please?

    Hello all,

    Am attempting to identify and value a couple of helmets. You guys have been so helpful, I thought I'd try again.

    Truly appreciate any information you might have to share.

    Best Regards,

    Beth

    Hi again Beth, could you put up a shot of the decal straight on, and read the shell markings. you will find the markings at the left ear and at the back of the skirt.

    All the best, Andy

    As said before, we need a straight on shot of both decals, preferably as close as possible.

    Hi Beth, it's impossible to verify these decals as original with these photos. Please look inside the skirt and post the maker and size code and lot number. The lot number is on the back of skirt, the maker and size code is on the right side of the skirt with the interior fading you. I hope it's a Q....

    As said also required are clear head on shots of the decals, both sides.

    Cheers
    Doug

    I think the liner is wrong in the shell. The stitching is at the front...!? Also 1 tongue is stitched over another...

    No worries there Krikke, it's quite common to find liners in this orientation.

    Then, if I zoom in on the picture with the liner, I think I can read 'Q66' or 'Q68'. Lotnbr starting with '4...'
    That would be nice offcourse... :-)

    Not sure tough.

    Quite common if the liner has been removed/replaced surely?

    Never saw liners with a backworth orientation.
