For sale here is a great looking US WW2 Tanker Helmet. This is one was made by the uncommon maker of Sears Saddlery Co. The helmet is size marked 7 1/8, and is a great size for wear or display. It fits my 7 3/8 head nicely.
The only real issue with the helmet is that the front felt pad that sits under the from sweatband is loose, but it can easily be pushed back into place. The elastic is all good and retains its elasticity. The exterior of the helmet shows some scuffing and some leather surface finish loss from age and scuffing.
Inside, the helmet shows minor sweat and oil stains, but is nice with a very legible maker's mark. The interior leather is all nice and supple. The helmet has a bit of a cant to it, so it will need to be properly placed on your form. This is a great helmet from a hard to find maker.
This helmet will wear or display well. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.Please take a look at my other great items! The item "US WW2 ArmyTank Tanker Helmet. Light wear" is in sale since Friday, December 11, 2020.
