WWII German Luftwaffe LKpN101 Summer Mesh Flying Helmet, COMPLETE with all Avionics-This is a very good example of the Luftwaffe mesh flying helmet with all the key features: the dark brown mesh or net cloth exterior; earphones with their dark brown smooth leather covers, securing straps, buckles and fittings, hooks and the elasticized pullout straps beneath the earphone covers. There is some inor wear and a few extremely small holes in the mesh net. At the bottom rear is the upside down, brown leather “Y” tab, the arms of which extend into neck straps bearing the dark reddish-brown bakelite covered larynx (Mi 4b) microphones (marked with the Luftwaffe control number “Ln. 26779-2”). The avionics cord, with its four-prong end plug, exits the helmet above the microphone straps. The cord and plug are excellent, with the black bakelite plug being marked “BLKvFl27560”. The oval earphones are fleece padded – lightly soiled, and with some wear flattening, but sound. The translucent plastic earphone covers (beneath the fleece) are present with some discoloration. There is a nomenclature tag at the rear of the helmet nicely marked with the Baumuster (Model type) LkpN101. The manufacturer is noted with the ordnance code of “hdc” indicating it was produced by the firm of Luftfahrtgeraetewerk Hakenfelde GmbH, Berlin-Spandau and the size given but hard to read. A very good example and a bargain!
