Description:

The LKpW101 was the winter flight helmet for the German Luftwaffe during World War II. This leather helmet with rabbit fur lining comes with a receiver inside the leather receiver cups and a leather and bakelite throat microphone unit. The data label has the "bxo" code for Deutsche Telephonwerke und Kabelindustrie. The throat mic is marked "Mi4b," "bxo" and "Ln26779-3." Includes a very rare double hose closed system 10-6701 oxygen mask with two point attachment. This unusual oxygen mask was likely developed for use at high attitude towards the end of the war. Provenance: The Putnam Green/Sycamore Collection

Rating Definition:

The flight helmet is very fine with the leather remaining supple and minimal wear to the lining. The oxygen mask is also very fine with the rubber remaining flexible and the chamois lining to the mask remaining in place including the nose strap. A fine example of a World War II Luftwaffe winter flight helmet with rarely encounter double hose oxygen mask. This is a must have for the serious WWII aviation collector.
