    I hope the owner was not wearing this at the time, looks a s though the "projectile" strike had such force that the helmet flew forward causing the dent to the front. Leon.

    Some of the damage came from the side. So i agree with Glenn on this one "Shrapnel damage"

    Whatever made that hole impacted almost side on, you can see the 'bulge' where it struck the inner-left side of the helmet to the rear. A very nice helmet!

    My not so forensic analysis thinks he could have caught a burst of machine gun fire from his right side. One bullet glanced off of the front, and the second one went inside the rear of the helmet. It could be shrapnel damage, but that front side doesn't have the jagged damage I'd expect. Cool helmet though, I'd buy it!
