    chris you are one of the luckiets finders i know fantastic item imo if its gonna damage the hessian sacking and wire then dont remove it unless you are itching to find out yourself!!
    I will not look to see what is under it will just destroy it.
    But it would be nice to know,plus the Hessian cloth is hard and in some area attach to the shell and to the chicken wire.

    Thank you.Someone did his homework.
    You are totaly correct on that.
    If I had bought it I would probably not be sure about any chicken wire helmet. But this was in the farmer barn and ask if I could have it.
