R.A.F. C-type Flying Helmet (Late Patt.)


Stores Ref. 22c/879, Size 3 (7 1/8 - 7 3/8). The leather is completely supple and in very good to excellent condition, fully embossed with ref nos. and broad arrow. All straps are good and three of the four retain most of the original coatings on the press studs - the fourth has around 60% remaining. The lining is cleaner than average with notable soiling on the inner donuts and back of the neck only. The rubber receiver carriers are both excellent and the chinstrap retains excellent elasticity & good colour. Fully wired with a purple flecked mid tan coloured loom, matched 10A/13466 receivers (one with cracked cover) and bell jackplug. An very good example in a good size. Stock code H16615.
