Okay, what is this one?

 

Is it airborne jump master or is it an odd armor test piece?

 

Shaped and made like a football helmet. Has a leather suspension with a Rawlin's stamp. There is a set or wires that runs to the two ear pieces.

 

This was sitting in a collection I was able to buy from this morning.

Agree with Alex. Some tanker probably didn't like the standard tanker helmet and created his own. A fellow I drink coffee with is a retired Army Major. He was a tanker. He bought a flying helmet and modified it by attaching his headset to it. He gave it to me. It had so many dents, chips, and dings in it I considered it funky and sold it. Of course now I regret having done that.
