Original German WWII Luftwaffe LKpW101 Winter Flying Helmet in Size 57cm with Avionics
Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent condition German WWII Luftwaffe Flieger Kopfhaube (Aviator Helmet/Hood), model LKp W101. This is a helmet for winter, as indicated by the W. It is made of leather, with a very nice rabbit fur lining, which has a chamois backed forehead area and neck straps. It even comes with a fully correct and intact communication setup, with attached throat microphones, installed headphones, and a bakelite 4 pin connector on the back.
The helmet is in excellent condition. It still has the original manufacturers tag on the interior rear:

Deutsche Telephonwerke & Kabelindustrie AG (German telephone works and cable industry Co.) of Berlin, a manufacturer of telephone and radio equipment. We do not know if they manufactured this flying helmet, or whether it was shipped to them for outfitting with the avionics. Overall condition is very good to excellent. It features the studs and hooks for a 4 point oxygen mask attachment.
The throat microphones are marked Mi4a and Fl 26779-1 meaning the avionics are comprised of round Mi4a magnetic type throat microphones with four-pole break coupling/plug. It carries the short communication cord favored by fighter pilots and is fitted with a plug that is nicely marked BLK v Fl 27560.
This really is a fantastic medium size (57cm) example of a German WWII Flying helmet, complete with avionics!
