    Thanks Duke&Ade,my helmet was made by MSA in many styles,it is constructed of resin impregnated textiles for high temp applications for steel mills,fire dept,ect.&for the mining industry w/metal clips at front for lamps.Mine seems to be of an earlier model,maybe for steel industry which was adopted for fire fighting due to it's low cost compared to fire hats at the time,I believe the proper term for all are skullgard helmets.It became an easy fact hunt,mostly solved by you both&others..I wish the best to you both& all the members of the forum for the New Year..CHEERS!
