£295.00 Approx $380.65, €347.06

Size medium.  Dated 3-45 (March 1945).  Rare wartime dated example of this otherwise relatively common mask.  The rubber facepiece retains good shape, is in excellent pliable condition although a little grubby.  There appears to be no cracking or crazing even when flexed.  The pearl grey suede lining is complete and has less than average soiling.  Fitted with a reasonably good type 57 microphone assembly and a pink flecked dark tan coloured loom with the correct large 2-pin socket, 10H/18196. Note that the microphone securing wire is absent but it would be simple to replace if requried.  The webbing harness is complete but a little soiled and has lost elasticity.  These late war H-masks are very difficult to obtain in any condition and are considerably rarer than the G-type mask.  An very good  used example.  Stock code O18732.
