RAF C-type flying helmet, 1st pattern internally wired

Code: H24074

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/879, size 3 (71/8-7 3/8).  The leather is supple, clean and  in very good overall condition.  The surface is a little scuffed with a couple of small nicks on the top. All goggle straps are good and retain most of the original coating on the press studs.  The lining is complete, has average soiling and just a couple of small holes (see photographs).  Both rubber receiver carriers look good but have stiffened and the receivers would be best left in place.  The chinstrap is a bit dirty but retains good elasticity.  Wired with a light tan coloured loom, matched type 32 (10A/13466) receivers and black cased bell jackplug.  A good ‘+’ used example of the rarer first pattern / early internally wired C-type of definite wartime manufacture.  Stock code H24074.
