NSKK helmet

Article about: I am in the process of purchasing this NSKK motorcycle helmet. I am fairly sure of it being a period piece but just want a second opinion. What would the condition be considered as? Thanks,

    Yep I am staring only at the goggles lol i found a reproduction pair of the WW2 goggles for 50 bucks even though I hate repro stuff it may have to do just for display purposes of dressing up the helmet.

    .
    There a many similar goggles to be had, if one doesnt want to go the repro route.

    Though not all will be mistaken for the WWII kind of course.

    Here a variation on the theme; Russian pilot goggles

    The goggles look a little like the Leon Jeantet Aviator Retro model - the model was one of the original Jeantet model that have been made for over a 100 years (back then it wasnt 'retro' of course). Much copied goggles as well.

    I used to own a similar pair of the Leon Jeantet goggles pictured below.
    I bought them for riding my vintage motorbike figuring that with all the aviators and bike riders using them through the last 100 years, I couldnt go wrong.
    Surprisingly and disappointingly flimsy.

    The 'GF' again:

    Many of these things we like are being scarfed up by the retro inspired Steampunk crowd. That has me a bit concerned as they sometimes ruin items in order to adapt them for purposes other than intended.

    My impression as well.

    Case in point; those simple round(-ish) alpine/glacier goggles in a tin can and of varying age.

    Right up their alley.

    Yes, the 1960's era biker crowd did really bad stuff to WWI-II German items....helmets, insignia, etc....I hate to think of another bunch doing the same.

    Here are some pics with the goggles I have. Unfortunately the leather around the eye pieces is missing. I got them for $15 at an antique store, so they didn't cost much and they still look cool. Even with the missing parts.
