    I have a feeling,that the wire was not charged and no helmets were worn

    Where the wire goes under the rim and the ends of the wire where it is cut would be good too mate.

    A nice helmet maybe. But that wire could have been added at almost any time. From the pictures supplied there is no evidence of contact wear to the helmet.

    Should have added these photos in the beginning. Note the wire does not make contact with the helmet except in certain areas, in the photos you can see the wear in these areas. Also note the vertical lines left over from where objects have been slid under the wire. The wire is tight and pretty much cemented to the helmet on the skirt as expected. The tool marks made while bending the wire are also very old. New tool marks would remove the rust on the wire and expose shiny metal. There are no traces of modern tool marks on the wire. Just click on the photos to make them larger.

    Some of the rubbing of the paintwork is at odds with the actual position of the wire. I still remain unconvinced, but then again - it may look different again when actually being held.

    An interesting helmet. As for rust not being under the wire, this does raise some flags for me. True, rust will be on bare metal, but it would also come from the wire Itself and seriously stain the paint of what it is sitting on-as you can see in several spots. And, speaking of the rust on the wire, that is another flag. I am somewhat concerned about the amount of Red rust showing. After 70 years or more, it is surprising to see it still showing as bright red. I would be very cautious of this helmet. A shame that the leather liner has very extensive red rot. Unfortunately, there is no way to stop it.
