Honestly, when I first was handed the helmet to confirm whether his price was "reasonable", I wasn't very impressed. I was expecting a package with two rare Franco-Prussian War era rifles so was focused on that, and have been pretty bored with FJ collecting. Then I snapped out of it and bought it. As a "Leopard can't change his spots" I now can't believe I would have considered passing on it....

Terry, it is a "ckl", but can't make out the entire lot number.

It is interesting that while each bolt has the correct pair of nuts, they are reversed. The FJ adjusted the chinstraps, based on some slight "crushing" of the grommets above, and reinstalled the nuts with the inner ones on the outside.

Willi,
Superb! Is there any chance of tracing the owner by the number and name in it?

Thanks Willi. I guess the FJ just flipped the outer nut so that the flat side was down and the shoulder side up. Not uncommon at all. Nice helmet.

Cheers,
Terry

Nice to see a ckl with an aluminium liner band. A cracking helmet.
