Very tough to find. I sold mine a few years ago due to lack of space.

Both, very nice examples of this rare helmet. I notice James's haube does not have the tin spike support disc. Is this the same on our first example Jonas? I this a characteristic of these vulcan fibre helmes Tony?

At some point the suport disc was on the outside of the helmet but before i bought it the disc was mounted back to the inside of the shel
you clearly see the cirkel that was made on top of the helmet over the years
So my helmet had olso the suport disc on the outside

Thanks al for the nice comments
