1930s Private Purchase Flying Helmet
By 'S. Lewis's Of Racing, Flying & Motor Clothing Fame'. Small to medium size. Typical 1930s private purchase helmet in dark brown chromed leather with a blanket lining. Adjustable buckled chinstrap. Press studded earflaps for use with Gosport earpieces/tubes. Single rear goggle strap. The leather is in good supple condition with fairly minor wear on exposed sections. Light surface corrosion on the buckle. The lining remains generally very clean with more marking at the forehead and back of the neck as usual. Fitted with a nice pair of chromed 'DH Type Earphones' connected to a good flexible set of Gosport tubes. A decent example of this classic helmet. Stock code H19715.
