Description
 
Original Third Reich NSKK (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps) 2nd Pattern Leather Motorcycle/Crash Helmet- This second pattern NSKK crash helmet is an extremely impressive piece of headgear. The front of this piece is dominated by a beautiful example of the textbook third pattern (adopted in 1939 with the scripted banner) NSKK eagle used on these second pattern helmets. The eagle retains great amount of original finish, with some minor scuffs and hardly any loss to the black paint in the NSKK banner around the swastika. The helmet itself is in very good excellent condition, but does have some leather around the exterior pads is flaking off. The glossy black finish on the leather exterior and metal ventilation fittings is still gleaming and has the usual scuff marks. The front visor is in excellent condition. The leather on the and neck flap is simply beautiful, showing almost no wear at all. All of the leather on this outstanding second pattern NSKK crash helmet remains supple, with only extremely minor age toning. The interior of this helmet features a tan leather liner, which is size stamped “57”. The liner is complete, but five of the fingers have been torn through the holes and comes with a drawstring (do not know if this is original?). A very nice second pattern NSKK motorcycle crash helmet is complete in all aspects, including the original integral chin strap. Overall, it’s a great example, displays nice and absolutely loaded with eye appeal.
