LkpN101 flying helmet. Manufactured by Luftwahrtgeratwerke Hakenfelde G.m.b.H., Berlin (who used the code 'h.d.c.' on their kit). The famous 'net-top' helmet proved popular with Luftwaffe aircrews as it was designed for comfort without the restriction of a chinstrap. This variant has attachment points for 2-strap oxygen masks only. It has dark brown leather earcups with dark banding and 'mesh'. All leather parts are very good although the forehead band has a piece inset at the centre. This is incredibly well executed and may well be original but does differ from others we've had. The netting/mesh is excellent with just one small hole as shown. The avionics are comprised of a 1.2m rubber insulated loom, oval Mi4b magnetic throatmicrophones and four-pole break coupling/plug, Fl27560. Both receivers and plastic 'soundboards' are present. The shearling lining is very clean but the chamois lining parts are a bit grubby/rubbed. Labelled. A very good display helmet. Stock code H24847.
