Description:

The famous/infamous LKpN101 summer flight helmet was very popular with German fighter and bomber pilots throughout World War II. This net top or mesh lightweight flight helmet was designed without a chinstrap, which provided greater comfort for the wearer. It has leather receiver cups with receiver, 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." The plug is marked "BLK v F 127560." Includes tinted goggles and "bwz" code (Auer) type 6701-1 oxygen mask with two point attachment. Provenance: The Putnam Green/Sycamore Collection

Rating Definition:

The flight helmet is very fine, showing some wear to the fleece lining and some flex wear to the leather receiver cups. The data label is clear. The oxygen mask is also very fine with the rubber remaining flexible and the chamois lining to the mask remaining in place with the nose strap partially detached. A great example of the Luftwaffe's famed LKpN101 flight helmet complete with receiver, goggles and oxygen mask that will be a welcomed addition to any World War II aviation collection.
