Genuine Used British Army Helmet Chin Scales, Ideal for Victorian / WW2 & Current.
This type of chin scale has been used by the British Army since Victorian times and they are still in use today.
We have been lucky enough to find a number of genuine British Army issue examples and they are ideal for finishing off a good helmet.
British Guards units are issued with this type of chin scale for their bearskins and plumed helmets. They are also very similar to the chinstrap used on the British Merryweather Victorian Fire Helmet.
Each of the examples show slightly different wear and tear - so we have listed them all individually. That way you can pick the particular one you want. We think that they date from around the 1950’s, but they could be older.
In each case, you will receive the exact item in the photos. So please check out the photos in detail.
Combined shipping is never a problem.
