    Default NSKK Crash Helmet Eagle

    Hello all,
    A friend of mine recently acquired a Crash Helmet and is looking for an eagle to go along. He sent me pictures that I'm posting for help on authenticity.
    The Crash Helmet is an NSKK 1st pattern (being very similar to the WW1 pilot & driver crash helmets) and the eagle is also 1st pattern.
    It's the authenticity I'm not sure of as I've seen plenty of variants of the 1st patterns depending on makers... There are no RZM tags or maker's logos to be seen anywhere.
    What do you think?

    Thanks Ade.
    I thought the helmet interior looked too new/minty compared to the average to good exterior but this can happen I guess.
    But most importantly, you think the eagle is OK too? I've compared it with other models out there and it is pretty close but not 100% (wing span differs from eagle to eagle) but maybe this is due to the facts there were several manufacturers anyway?
    Cheers,
    Ron

    Both the helmet and Eagle are good - nice find.
