This is a circa World War I to early 1920s leather flight or motorcyclist's helmet. The helmet has some unusual fleece lining and what appears to be a period repair to the chin strap buckle. The leather is still very pliable.
Circa World War I - early 1920s.
No size tag: when the helmet is lying flat on its side the main part of the helmet measures about 10” high by 11” in width (not including strap).
Leather, fleece, metal buckle.
This is from a civil aviation collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. Ebay CON-DB-25-13 LCGEX8/13
