USAAF / USN HB-7 Headset

Code: H2426


Standard aircrew headset often seen worn by bomber pilots over the '50 mission crusher' cap. Wired with a headset HS33 loom, red PL354 jackplug and ANB-H-1 receivers.  Appears to be wired for US Naval use having the larger NAF-484901 ear cushions and also fitted with a 'hinged' microphone boom, MT-522A/U. The actual microphone is missing but comes with loom and 2-pin PJ-292 plug.   The headset itself has surface corrosion but good leather headbands.  The wiring and receivers appear good.  The chamois earpads are soiled/worn and one has a surface hole (see photo).    Stock code H2426.
