Early 20th Century Flying/Motoring Helmet - IMPERI

I love this German Flying Helmet. It is one of the very few I've seen with an actual "Issue Stamp". It is one of those rare Flying Helmets that actually say "I was there".
Made of a fine red/brown leather with a light canvas lining. The poppers work fine but the top surfaces have actually rusted and the chinstrap is missing.
It does have the double stitched peak and full width nape, typical of a WWI Imperial German Flying Helmet.
Make no mistake - this is a real find!
