1950's Vintage Cairns And Brothers Leather Fire Helmet, Phfd Captain New Yorker:
Thisextremelyrare black New Yorker Model N5A Cairns Fireman Helmet bears the E marking on the seal, making it the 5th year that Cairns was in Clifton, NJ. I believe the vintage to be around 1954. Great old antique lid for any collection. Leather is in realyl good condition and very little wear from use, only one panel is anything less than perfect. Ear flaps and sanitary liner look the same as the day they were manufactured, best set I've seen yet. The brass is in very good condition, the brass ring and suspension straps are present and in great shape. Low starting price and !!! Not a Sam Houston, but rather an N5 Newyorker, the original.
