Hi, i believe i manage to read all the heat stamp numbers.
Its apears to be a 491 C?
Could i be right?
that would make it around April 1943 giving the possibility that this was originally a fixed bail shell ?

Ive just noticed that i seems to have dimples on the rim where the bails are which means this was indeed originally fixed bail
I think it could be a helmet used in the pacific because the inside looks like it was dipped into salt water a lot almost like if somebody was scooping water up with the helmet and pouring it on their head like to cool the person down.
...maybe. just a thought.
i really like the color and cork
