Product Description: This Miner's Helmet is made from lead-free pewter and is a miniature model of a miners helmet. It is supplied on a quality key-chain. The miner's helmet key-ring is presented on a Transport & Industry key-ring header card, which depicts an industrial background with chains down the sides and a gear with teeth in the centre on the front.
Information: Miners relied on helmets specifically designed for their safety and illumination needs. These helmets were typically made of sturdy metals such as iron or brass to provide protection against falling rocks, debris, and bumps in the dark and cramped mining environment. The helmet featured a domed shape that covered the top of the miner's head, providing a certain level of impact resistance.
One of the notable features of these helmets was the inclusion of a light holder situated at the front of the helmet. It provided a limited but essential light source to guide the miner's way and detect potential hazards or obstacles ahead.
