These helmets are more rare than any of the standard issue flight helmets due to their limited issuance and use in combat. Made of steel & leather, this helmet is in EXCELLENT used condition!Some slight wear and marks, but nothing that detracts. The data label remains and clearly indicates, "SSK90", and will fit size 57-59. No major damage, and the leather remains soft and supple, in a nice, rich, dark brown. Worn in combat, it is missing the chin straps.
As mentioned above, the straps were identical to those used on the Fallschirmjaeger Helmet (the only difference being affixed by snaps), so it should be easy to replace, if one wished. I have shown one in use in the last photos. A FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
