    Very nice set, Greg. It's good to get hold of something like that in unissued condition.



    There's always two schools of thought with flight helmet collectors. Used condition with some history vs unissued mint condition. Personally, I prefer a bit of both. If a helmet or mask is identified with a pilot's name, I like that. But it's also very nice to own a mint item.

    Cheers, Willie.

    Very nice, Greg. It would be good if helmets could talk and tell their story.

    Cheers, Willie.

    Very nice, Greg.
    Just guessing - a USN/USMC HGU-84 with EEK visor. I'm not well versed with the more modern US buckets; it can get a bit confusing with all their different variants and mods.

    Cheers, Willie.
