    I didn’t know that you were familiar with the inside of helmets as nets are usually restricted to the outside. :-)

    .....not seen that marking before.....

    Is it where the dome pad/cruciform pad goes, if so added before liner was fixed in place.

    Yes, right at the crown ( you can see the hole for the screw in the photo )

    Disappointed the answer is not in "the book" Adrian. A partial refund is in order , me thinks !

    I was about to reply that the book’s not about the helmets but about the markings applied to them......but this is precisely what this is.......doh!!

    Volume 2 perhaps.......

    Might add, the shell also has a number "3" , though that is clearly hand painted, and likely added after the liner was fitted. ( as were the dead insects IMO !)

    Only the helmet manufacturer or place of assembly would have seen this stamp, once the liner was in place.

    Indeed. I am guessing a lot of us have early helmets with these stamps in them which we don't know about .
