Description

This helmet plate is in superb condition. It is die struck from white metal and has an attractive finish. The helmet reverse retains all three lugs that were used to secure the piece onto the Garda Day Helmet.
This is a large badge and it measures over 7cms X 7cms.
This is an original item from the 1920’s and is no longer in use, the Day Helmet being taken out of service in the 1940’s. These plates were worn on the four panel former DMP/PAC helmets (re-issued) and also on the Bobby style six panel helmets of the 1930’s.
