Luftwaffe LKpN101 Netzkopfhaube, 1st pattern

Code: H25221

SOLD

LkpN101 flying helmet.  The famous 'net-top' helmet proved popular with Luftwaffe aircrews as it was designed for comfort without the restriction of a chinstrap.  This example is the early variant having attachment points for 2-strap oxygen masks.  It has dark brown leather earcups with dark banding and 'mesh'.  All leather parts are very good and the netting/mesh is near complete and generally very good although it does have a few small holes/repairs - see photographs.  The avionics are comprised of the correct early 1m rubber insulated loom, round Mi4c magnetic throatmicrophones and four-pole break coupling/plug.  Both receivers and plastic 'soundboards' are present. The shearling lining is a little soiled but in good order, the chamois lining parts are a bit grubby/rubbed.  Labelled.  A good '+'/very good display helmet.  Stock code H25221.
