Leather 1890's Cairns Brothers Fire Helmet:
1890's Cairns Brothers Fire Helmet all leather the helmet is in great condition for its age all the leather is in perfect condition no cracks or chips rare for a 123 year old piece. The front badge still has KFD under the Keystone emblem dose not have the upper letters above the design. I want to say it was from a Pennsylvania fire company possible the Keystone Fired Department that use to be in Uniontown PA just seems logical since it was purchased at an estate sale not that far from their. All the brass is also still intact as well as the sweat band would be about a 6 1/8 head to fit. The eagle is also in perfect shape not sure if it is brass has gold guiding on it. Only thing missing from the helmet is its rear round hook for hanging but still has its fitting just the loop is gone. Thanks for looking good luck.
