WW1 Imperial German Air Force Flying Helmet

Code: SOLD-1249

SOLD

Typical 'standardized' pattern helmet in dark brown leather with a blanket lining and roll back, press-studded earflaps - studs marked 'PRYM'. Elongated 'lobster tail' rear panels. Simple leather chin strap with a friction buckle fastening. No other labels or markings . The leather is in very good supple condition. The lining has wear and soiling - especially at the lower neck and strap fastening areas. In these areas there is fraying and holes with some darning in places (see photos). The chin strap is a little fragile being manufactured in particularly thin leather with surface wear in places. Good used condition overall. See p.138 of 'Vintage Flying Helmets' for a near identical example. Stock code H18189.
