    Default Is this A WWI flight helmet

    A friend of mine has this and wants to know if its WWI flight helmet or later or is it just a leather hat any help would be great. The leather is still soft and the liner has no holes. If it is WWI Military I will try and buy it off him would $125.00 US be a good price.The helmet has what looks like two ear holes tha have a cover (see photos) also has a loop on the top if that helps at all . No makers tag

    could be a civilian style flight helmet from the 20's or 30's...

    Or a civilian automobile helmet. They were driving fairly open vehicles back then too,
    and just as auto goggles were used by pilots, I'm sure there were helmets like these
    used for driving, and vice-versa........

    Guys thanks for the help. Dave it does look alot like yours. I will tell my friend that it might be WW1 or just a driving hat. I think I will hold off on this one for my collection. Thanks again. Gary

    Wow such a tough area. When I saw it, I was reminded of the photo of the SS NCO in the famous Malmedy crossroads photo. I would say, tenativly driving helmet--but definately German
