Rare Fdny Leather Fire Helmet:
for your consideration an old Firemans helmet. I beleive this to be from NYFD. It was found in a storage unit with other NYC Fire memorabilia. Just a guess though. Its leather. the edges inside look like brass or bronze? the tip at the top is bent (see pic)there are reflective decals including one with a shamrock. The clear plastic shield in the front is two hinged pieces. there is no shield just the protruding screws. the leather is worn around the brim and the stitches are loose ( see pic where it has seperated)the edge of the brim has some scrolling in the leather. the top of the helmet is bent (looks again like bronze or brass?)plastic snap is yellow. there is the letter B on the brass inside rim.no other distinguishing marks other than what looks like a backwards 7.
very interesting !
