WWII German Luftwaffe Summer Flyers Cap w/Avioncs by Siemens-This is the LKPS101 flyers helmet used in summer months by air crew of the Luftwaffe. An excellent example of the Luftwaffe flying helmet in outstanding condition with all the key features: the light brown cloth exterior; earphones with their dark brown smooth leather covers, securing straps, buckles and fittings, hooks and the elasticized pullout straps beneath the earphone covers. At the bottom rear is the upside down, brown leather “Y” tab, the arms of which extend into neck straps bearing the dark reddish-brown bakelite covered larynx (Mi 4b) microphones (marked with the Luftwaffe control number “Ln. 26779-2”). The avionics cord, with its four-prong end plug, exits the helmet above the microphone straps. The cord and plug are excellent, with the black bakelite plug being marked “BLKvFl27560”. The oval earphones are fleece padded. The translucent plastic earphone covers (beneath the fleece) are marked “Ln 26602”. There is a nomenclature tag at the rear of the helmet nicely marked with the Baumuster (Model type) LkpS101, and a reddish-pink ink Luftwaffe acceptance stamp. The manufacturer is noted as Siemens with the size given as 55. About as choice an example as you can get, these helmets are always a very desirable item!
