Original WWII U.S. Army Air Force B-6 Flight Helmet And Goggles Certified
Original WWII U.S. Army Air Force B-6 Flight Helmet And Goggles Certified. Standardized on 15 September 1941 these helmets saw widespread use and this example is in good but used condition. The brown finished shearling leather is soft with slight loss at the brow. It is fitted with correct hooks in for use with A-9 and A-10 oxygen masks as well as the later snaps for use with the A-10R or A-10A masks. Inside is shearling lined and fitted with nice USAAF label that indicates a 1942 contract date. This pattern was replaced in 1943 by the AN-H-16. No size shown but we estimate size medium. Drawstrings still in place and shearling covered chin strap and buckles. The helmet has a nice set of original goggles. One of the classic desirable collector’s items from the WWII in good condition.
