antique original Vintage Cairns Mfg. Leather Fireman Helmet

an old Cairns Leather fire helmet , in virtually MINT unissued condition

NOT RESTORED OR MESSED WITH

large size - between a size 7 1/4 & 7 1/2

the liner shows absolutely no sweat or wear - the small sewn in label is perfect -

the havelock / neck protector is as clean as the day this was made

- this was never worn

the black paint is 98.8 % intact

the brass upper shield support is not dented or bent - and still has the original graphics

the original front plate / badge / shield has never been filled in -

as nice as you will find one

you can not up grade this example

this one never had a chin strap , instead of the typical round metal disk at the inner top , this example only has a small cloth label sewn into the liner

the tag says

"Cairns Sanitary Cushion lining {and four lines of patent numbers } "

i believe this dates back to the 1950s { or early 1960's , as they didn't change that much during that period }

again ,...This is not restored , it has the original paint, no repairs ,..... The shield is 100% original to the helmet and has never been removed.

The helmet is complete including the rear ring. The liner is cloth and in perfect order , with a small leather pad sewn in the front

dont pass it up -

-you just don't see these in THIS condition , ever ....

a must have for all advanced firefighting collections , & firemen , firefighter, emt & police / military / firefighting aficionados
