Stores reference 22c/879, size 3 (71/8 - 73/8).  The leather looks good and remains supple with little wear other than a small hole below the right earpiece (see photographs). Four of the goggle straps are very good but one has minor damage/loss at the end. Two press studs retain most of their original coatings, the other two have some loss as shown.  Both rubber receiver carriers are complete and very flexible.  The lining is complete with just one small hole as shown.  The chamois is soft and reasonably clean.  The chinstrap is a little faded but does retain some elasticity.  Wired with type 32 receivers, a deep plum coloured 'heavy gauge' loom and early brown cased type 119 jackplug (chipped).  The loom is generally very good but has some fraying as shown.  A good looking helmet. Displays well.  Stock code H24607.
