WW1 British Brodie Helmet.

This example has only recently come to light and never been in a collection before. Its a second pattern with outer rim, outside paint work is quite chunky and has id say well over 78% of its original finish remaining, one small period dent to the top, crown is down to metal but has patina from years of being in a shed. The liner is in very good all round condition, no rips or tugs, still quite supply but in need of a clean if wishing, it is maker marked with details in red to the underside. Leather liner retaining crown cross strap is in good strong condition, the original leather chinstrap is present with buckle but has broken on one side. Shell has some stamps, hard to make out.
A very nice example that would with time clean up a treat, and as mentioned new to the market, getting on for 100 years old.
