SOLD

Stores reference 22c/878, size 2  (71/8-73/8).  The leather is supple, quite clean, and other than some surface scuffing and wear, in good/good '+' overall condition.  All goggle straps are good and the press studs retain most of their original coatings.  Note that the chinstrap closure stud is missing but will be replaced with a new one (if requested)before despatch.  Both rubber receiver carriers have been cut down and would require replacing in order to fit receivers.  Reproductions are available for about £35/pr.  The chinstrap is soiled and a little ragged but does retain some elasticity.  Faint Air Ministry King's crown and reference marks embossed into the leather.  This is a first pattern internally wired helmet of definite wartime manufacture.  All you need to do is reinstate the receiver carriers and it will be a nice complete helmet.  Sold unwired.  Stock code H25088.
