A seriously Top Shelf helmet that would be hard to better. The leather is in fantastic condition and still retaining it's original mid tan colour. All studs and straps are excellent. The inner fur/chamois is excellent with no loss of fur. Good chamois leather and the lower section is with very clear W.
Arrow with a W to it's left side and a P below. Above the arrow there is what looks like an S? Fur trim to the face area is good with one small stitching fault at the front. The head strap buckle is still fully leather covered and the internal cords are A. The thin brow strap buckles are still with their polished finish with no rust or pitting.
The bottom cotton trim, again in great condition. Incredibly rare to find a genuine issue example outside of the few museum pieces.
