Thanks Dave. It's now the oldest piece of headgear I have. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

It's actually an 1889 pattern helmet, which has a slightly different brim shape than the 1880 pattern. These are some of my favorite US helmets, and I've never seen one marked as a subcontract piece to Ridabock. Very cool.
