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

Stores ref. 22c/451. Size 3. The leather is in very good condition - clean, reasonably supple and undamaged. Fitted with 4 goggle straps only - all in good condition and with the majority of the original press stud coatings remaining. Very good chinstrap complete with metal end tip. The Bennett buckle has lost approx. 50% of its leather coating. The rubber receiver carriers are not completely flexible - one showing minor edge cracking, the other having similar edge cracks and a larger split that would probably respond well to glueing. The lining is really quite clean but does have some wear hoes and a split in one of the chamois donuts. Fitted with 3 press studs to each side making it suitable for \'E\' series and G-type masks masks. A \'flat-hook\' has been fitted to one side. Clear A.M King\'s crown and reference markings externally and nicely labelled in the crown. Sold unwired and without receivers. Has some issues but overall a good used display helmet. Stock code H15985.
