Original British Comb Top Queen's Crown Bobby Helmet from the Essex Police - Size 7
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 ESSEX / POLICE in a blue enameled circle. In the center of the plate are three Saxon seax knives surrounded by Red Enamel, the Coat of Arms of Essex. The "Queen's Crown" 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 web hook and loop fastener chin strap. The Helmet also is fitted with i's everyday patent leather chin strap as well. The original label is still present, indicating that it is a Custodian Helmet. The suspension indicates it is a size 7 or 56 cm. It has a very nice cork lining, with a bright red sweatband and white crown rigging.
In very nice overall condition and ready to display.
