Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent condition complete German WWII Leather model LKpW101 Flieger Kopfhaube (German Pilot's Helmet) manufactured by SIEMENS. This is a winter use sheep fleece lined dark brown leather Luftwaffe flying helmet which is complete with a very nice set of tinted German Pilot's goggles.

The helmet retains all snaps and loops and a very clean makers label sewn into the inside that is fully readable:

Fl. Kopfhaube Gr.
Baumuster LKpW101
Gerät-Nr.  124-436A
Werk-Nr.   - / Striwa
Anf. Z.       Ln 26618
Siemens
Lieferer: Luftfahrt-
gerätewerk Hakenfeld
G.m.b.H.

This gives the detailed contract, factory, and supplier information for the helmet. The size marking would normally be in the upper right corner, however the ink stamp has become unclear. We estimate that it fits about a size 7 1/4 (58cm) head. Both of the straps around the neck are full length, however they are split and somewhat delicate. They do still properly fasten under the neck as shown. This excellent flying helmet shows appropriate wear for its age with supple soft leather and a great interior!

The included goggles are very nice, with clear tinted lenses in galvanized steel surrounds, which have supple black rubber gaskets around them. Unfortunately like most elastic, the rear securing band is not nearly as stretchy as it used to be.

A great German Luftwaffe Aviator set, ready to display!
