UNISSUED!! Air Ministry WWII 2nd Pattern Ctype wit

This is a very rare Wartime 2nd Pattern Ctype Leather Flying Helmet....Never Worn, nor Wired.
I am also including an unissued Loom with all fittings for this specific type of Internally Wired Flying Helmet.
The Helmet leather and chamois lining are immaculate. The only issue is the receiver cups, although still soft they have misshapen in storage. This can be made to look 100% better with a thin strip of black cloth tape if so desired. I have fitted a pair of repro receivers to show how they look now.

A good size 3 which will look even better when wired up.

You do have to examine the leather closely but it is possible to make out the Air Ministry/Crown stamp and 22C/879. Fully stamped internally too. This is very rarely seen on 2nd Pattern Ctypes
