    Experimental CDN Army helmet worth ?

    Post by elvis3006 on Mon Feb 04, 2013 6:12 pm

    Curious as to what this might be worth? I have an experimental Canadian Army helmet made by the Barrday Co. of Cambridge ON, the Army trialed these helmets between 1989 to 1992. Anyone know its worth or who might be interested in it ? Thank you.

    Barrday Helmet


    By the early 1980s, the M1 helmet had been in general issue for over 20 years, and a replacement was needed. With the development of impact resistant materials such as Kevlar, most major armies were testing new helmet materials and designs. Canada trialled several patterns of helmet, notably the American PASGT and a French pattern (the F2). The PASGT saw some limited use by Canadians on peacekeeping tours in the 1990s. A modified version of the French helmet design was produced by the Barrday company in Ontario for user trials and testing. Several thousand of these helmets were produced between 1988 and 1990. Although several variants were made it was not adopted as standard, but is worn by some civilian police forces. The general design was considered acceptable with modifications, and it was similar to the final approved helmet, the CG634.
