...a std fixed bail or swivel ???

Chin strap loops are fixed. BTW, the liner is for display and is not original to the helmet.

I was just going to ask that. Very interesting lid. And yes your right, that one would be a centerpiece in any collection. Damn shame about the liner and the straps. But seems to be the way they are making their way back from Europe these days.

 

Very nice score!

Hey Scott, nice lid. Sorry you're hurtin, but glad you are bored and showing us some great stuff. I've seen soooooo many Medic lids that I'm wantin' one now myself. have a line on one but that may never materialize. Nice one on Ebay right now also, but up to $800 and who knows how much higher it will go.

 

Glad you're well enough to pull out your good stuff!

 

My continued prayers!

If you don't mind me asking how'd ya get it?

This helmet came into my possession as a result of a multi-helmet deal involving an old collection in Europe and several other collectors, both in Europe and the U.S.

I saw this helmet this morning and I have been trying to think of something clever to say other than wow. I can't so, WOW will have to do. That's a great piece of History. Thanks for posting it.

 

I hope you're feeling a bit better.

I thought it was going to be 'well I stepped into this antique store and an old lady had this plastic bag...' :lol:

 

This is an absolute stunner. A medic and airborne lid, what many collectors dreams are made of!
