Default FJ Helmet Snaps

Hello, I'm new to the forum, and I wanted know it there was a thread showing the different snap types on a FJ chin strap. I know I read where some chin strap snaps came with designs and were unmarked. It would be nice to see the different types. I would like to post my helmet, but cant seem to figure out how.
Thanks
Dave

You have to be a paying member to post pictures. Or use a photo bucket link...

Marked snaps include PRYM 4, STOCKO 4, and DERBY 4 . The only unmarked snap that I am aware of is the so-called filigree pattern below.

Wow, thanks for the examples! The snap on my helmet chin strap is close to the filigree. It is constructed the same, just has a different design. Were there different design versions of these?
