Hello everyone! This is a mkIV turtle helmet I picked up a while ago thinking it was some sort of a Brodie helmet. I suppose researching and trying to figure out as much as possible about what this actually is sparked my interest in helmets . Both shell and liner are dated 1952.
Now, I've got a few questions:
What could of possibly caused the strange ring of weird paint on the helmet? Stacking perhaps?
This is written on the shell itself: ROC 4 / LS / MA 1952 (you can see this on the second photo if you squint hard enough). What does that mean?
