USAAF A-9 oxygen mask

USAAF A-9 oxygen mask

Code: O25209

SOLD

USAAF A-9 'Short' Oxygen Mask.  By The Acushnet Rubber Co.  Dated January 1942.  The rubber facepiece is a little soiled but generally in good '+' flexible condition.  No damage but there is some cracking/crazing visible when the mask is flexed.  The nosewire is absent, possibly never fitted.  The attached corrugated oxygen tube is in excellent condition but a replacement and has not been secured with circlips.  The push-fit connector is a later period addition. The webbing harness retains good colour and is fitted with metal plates designed to attach to the hooks on the A-9 or B-6 helmet. The A-9 is a relatively rare mask as they were only produced between 1942 and August 1943.  A reasonably good example.  Stock code O25209.
