RAF C-type flying helmet, late pattern

RAF C-type flying helmet, late pattern

Code: H23468

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/879, size 3 (71/8-7 3/8).  The leather is very supple, clean and  in excellent overall condition without damage.   All goggle straps are very good and retain most of the original coating on the press studs.  Some metal components have light soft verdigris deposits but these are quite easy to remove with methylated spirits.  The lining is complete/undamaged with average to moderate soiling.  Both rubber receiver carriers look good but are quite rigid which is not an issue if you don’t want to remove the receivers.  The chinstrap is a bit faded with minor fraying and has little elasticity remaining.  Wired with a light tan coloured loom, type 32 (10A/13466) receivers and earlier brown cased bell jackplug.  The 2-pin plug for the oxygen mask microphone is positioned/sewn in place slightly further forward than usual. A very good used helmet.  Stock code H23468.
