Original RAF MK.3C Flying Helmet Size Large with P-Type Oxgen Mask

This is a nice example of the Mk-3c flight helmet. This is a used helmet with a few marks and scratches to the shell. The visors move freely and have some surface scratches but nothing too bad. Whilst the leather forehead and neck liners are present, the foam backing has all but disintegrated. The helmet is size Large and comes complete with a cloth visor cover which isshown in the pictures and P type mask as seen in the pictures. As issued throughout the 70’s and 80’s these are one of the best known RAF Flying Helmets. This helmet is in very good, unrestored original condition , It is complete with all avionics and plugs and has a nice tan leather liner. It does have some scratching from use on the shell and visors as can be seen from the photos but no cracks or major damage. This helmet is also the more desirable LARGE SIZE as can be seen from the label. It comes complete with a „P“ type oxygen mask, ( NOT Q TYPE ) which has no rot, rips or damage in exellent condition. The oxygen mask has the reinforced type of hose.This helmet is being sold as a collectable/display item only.As with many RAF bonedomes the main downside is the lining.  The leather is backed with foam rubber which is shedding quite badly as if often the case.  This can be removed with care and isn’t visible anyway in normal use.very nice helmet in the rare size Large in very good condition ,
