A very nice example of a Luftwaffe LKpW101 Winter Flying Helmet.

Constructed in dark brown chromed leather the Helmet is complete with its throat microphones, receivers and lead.

Externally the helmet is very good, the only damage being the loss of the two female press fasteners on the rear vertical goggle straps and one on the throat microphone strap.

Both chinstraps and buckles are in place as are the three oxygen mask hooks, goggle straps and side adjustment straps. The throat microphones are undamaged and are interesting in that the Bakelite covers are a reddish brown in colour. The strap, buckles and lead are very good, the lead without splits or cracks and the connector plug in place.

Inside, the sheepskin lining is clean and intact, both receivers present with their covers intact.

The manufacturer’s label is clear and shows the manufacturer’s name rather that three letter code so this is an early war example. No size is evident, but I believe this is perhaps a size 57 which displays well on a male display head.
