Luftwaffe LKpS101 Flying Helmet
By Siemens. Size 59. Manufactured in a flecked brown reed linen cloth with a green satin lining and lambswool inner 'earpieces'. This example has the usual brown leather covered earphones and is fitted with hooks/strap for the three-strap oxygen masks. Fully wired with LHB 1 (Mi 4b) magnetic throat microphones, loom and four-pole break coupling. It also fitted with receivers and retains one of the plastic soundboards.
The cloth is in excellent condition with only light soiling. All straps and buckles are very good although the metal components do have minor surface corrosion. The lining has some damage and loss of material at the back (mouse damage?) and minor fraying/wear - none of this is visible when worn or displayed. Nice clear label. The avionics are generally very good bar the lacking soundboard and a chip on the edge of the plug. Despite the damaged lining this is still a good example. Stock code H19724.
