RAF Type D Oxygen Mask - Early Variant

RAF Type D Oxygen Mask - Early Variant

Code: SOLD-1229

SOLD
The cloth is generally in excellent clean condition. Unusually there is little moth damage - this being confined to five small holes - one on the right side of the mask as worn - this can be seen in the photos near to the microphone mounting ring, and four small holes on the left side of the mask all running along the edges or the cheek (see photos). The remaining cloth is remarkably good and undamaged. There is a blood (?) stain on the lower section of the mask but this does not detract from the overall appearance. The chamois lining is quite clean and other than a small split in the horseshoe padding is completely undamaged. As with early variants the chamois stops short of the microphone mounting ring where the calico interlining can be cleary seen. The mask has been fitted with press studs directly attached through the material rather than on the later face defender strips. The microphone mounting ring is in very good condition and complete with reference number stamped into the metal. Please note that the small projecting 'pin' on the barrel of the hinge is missing. This does not affect the function at all and merely makes is slightly fiddlier to attach a microphone. Not fitted with a microphone or wiring but these can be supplied at extra cost if required. The overall shape of the mask is excellent and ideal for display. This is undoubtedly one of the better D-masks available. Excellent overall condition. Stock code O18502.
