Original British Comb Top E II R Bobby Helmet from the Ministry of Defence Police
Original Item: Only One Available. The Traditional Bobby helmet was named after the creator of the British Police Force, SIR ROBERT PEEL, who became Prime Minister under Queen Victoria. This version, known as a "Comb Top", replaced the earlier "ball top" and "rose top" helmets used in many areas. The pattern features a pronounced ridge on the top of the helmet, which is capped off by a silvered fitting some simple designs.
The front Helmet plate has a "Queens's Crown" to top, over a star burst, with MINISTRY OF DEFENCE / POLICE in a blue enameled circle. In the center of the plate is E II R, the royal cypher of Queen Elizabeth II. The "Queen's Crown" further indicates issue sometime after 1952, when Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne. Based on the design, we feel this is probably from the 1980s or 1990s.
The helmet interior is rigged with its Riot Gear liner with snap fastened chin strap. The Helmet also is fitted with i's everyday patent leather chin strap as well. The original labels are unfortunately missing, and the foam rubber padding under the sweatband has unfortunately deteriorated.
In very nice overall condition and ready to display.
