What is this?

I have been watching this item for some time and I am thinking of buying it.
It is not old, but I might buy it as a novelty.


Does anybody know what originally came in this "helmet"?
Initially I thought it might be Jim Beam.
I can not find any information on it at all.

Thanks,
John

I was given one of these by a customer from Budapest. My impression was that it was some kind of liqueur bottle. Unfortunately, it was empty! I kept it for about 10 years then solid it at the SOS .

Thanks Brian. Do you have any idea what type of liquor it was?
Did the spike sit that high on the one you had?

Hello Skipper John,

Condition of shell and painting is superb. I doubt this is a period item or even post war unless it has been repainted in last few days.
I would pass unless it is full of ”good stuff”.

Yes John, that is exactly what I had and the spike top is plastic. This is definitely not a period item or post war in my opinion.
