Superb Luftwaffe winter flight helmet by Siemens. This model LPkW101 was the later war cold weather flight helmet with significantly upgraded electronic communications. This example is just about perfect. Shell shows soft, healthy, unscuffed brown leather. Interior wool is bright and clean with the original fabric Siemens label which is likewise in perfect shape with crisp, clean and well contrasting wording with no running colors. The main plug is bakelite, maker logo marked and also marked BLK v Fl 27560. The cord is black rubber coated and is also fresh and clean right through to the leather plug that connects it to the helmet. The throat straps are nice and strong with the bakelite contacts being nice and clean with original gloss finish. These are maker logo marked as well as marked Mi4b Ln 26779-2. If any condition issue were to be found it may be a slightly oxidized right buckle meant to connect the left chin strap (There are two). A spot of oil would fix this buckle right up and the whole rig is otherwise as mint condition as any sane person could hope for. Great item.
