I have nothing to say about this... just thought some of you might like to look at it.

Thanks for post this one; very cool to see those really early RT Riddell helmets.

Golds don't match.

Because of how the RTs were made: these were made of three pieces and two kinds of plastic. The two sides were clear plastic painted on the inside; the "center seam/ridge" was a separate piece painted on the top. The clear plastic was kind of yellowish so they don't look the same. Riddell's later RK helmets were also made of 3 pieces but all the pieces were white-ish plastic painted on the outside of the shell.
