    Default Aluminum Firefigher-DDR?

    At the peril of my string suspicion this is DDR I wanted to submit for input.
    aluminum shell, repainted black
    Comb seems correct and has a what I can only describe as a lather gasket between it and the helmet
    size 55-rather small ( I thought my head was small geeez)
    several names
    cork pads band from shell
    straps unmarked
