NSKK motorcyclist's crash helmet - 1st pattern


Description

A quite nice early leather crash helmet with a 1st pattern NSKK eagle period time attached. The prongs of the bottom parts are broken and the circle around the swastika was somehow attached with a thread once to fix it. However, the eagle still holds fine through the two prongs of the wings. No extra holes! The bottom swastika part has left a clear mark to the leather around it being a good proof this badge sits on the helmet ever since.

Fine soft leather lining with a privat cord. Buckle and belt of the chin strap in place.

Unusual private RZM markings to the inside.

Size 57 stamped.
