Luftwaffe Leather Flight Helmet -Plug Throat Microphone
Hard to find luftwaffe leather flight helmet with the plug and throat microphone. Leather is just about perfect; Soft, supple and scuff free with no damage found. The soft white leather on the inside of the sweatband, chin straps and throat mics is is still quite strong but does show some discoloration from being exposed to skin oils when in use way back when; I actually consider this a positive as it shows this helmet was used quite a bit. Straps and buckles are all present and also undamaged. Wool lining shows no damage and is still rather clean. The fabric tag shows this was made by Siemens (Who of course is still in business) and gives all the particulars of this model helmet. Throat mics are in excellent shape with proper markings (See photos) and are properly attached to the nape at the back of the helmet. The only thing that I would call damage is the end of the electrical plug. There are four green leads that look like they should go into the plug; Two of these are out and fabric-taped to the side of the plug. I am not an expert on this type helmet and it is very possible that this is normal but it looks a little off to me. All things considered, this is a terrific helmet and I don't recall the last time I saw one in this good shape as there are a lot of little things that can get broken, snapped or fall off of these helmets.
