RAF C-type flying helmet, late pattern

Code: H25089

RESERVED

Stores reference 22c/879, size 3(71/8-73/8).  The leather is supple, quite clean, and other than some general surface scuffing and wear, in very good overall condition.  All the goggle strap press studs retain a good proportion of their original coatings.  Some soft verdigris deposits can be seen on the studs but this is easily removed with methylated spirits. The left rubber receiver carrier retains good shape but has stiffened and the right receiver carrier is somewhat distorted and has also stiffened.  The lining is complete/undamaged with just light to average soiling/rubbing (one chamois donut has a few missing stitches).  The chinstrap is faded/ragged but does retain some elasticity.  Wired with a pink flecked mid tan coloured loom, type 32 receivers, and black cased type 119 bell jackplug.  Note that the spring is absent from the plug.  A  good used helmet in a larger size.  Stock code H25089.
