Luftwaffe LKpS-101 Summer Weight Flying Helmet


By Siemens. Size 55. Dated 15 Dec. 193?. Manufactured in a flecked brown reed linen cloth with a green satin lining and lambswool inner \'earpieces\'. This example has the usual brown leather covered earphones and is fitted with hooks/strap for the three-strap oxygen masks. Fully wired with LHB 1 oval throat microphones, loom and four-pole break coupling. It is also fitted with receivers and plastic soundboards. The cloth is in excellent clean condition. All straps are good and the buckles are very good and metal components are free of corrosion. The lining is equally good and complete with nice labels and stamps. Excellent avionics. The only slight snag is that one of the two poppers on the throat-microphone strap is missing. A really good example. Stock code H15232.
