A fine condition WW2 United States Army Airforce A9 canvas/cotton flying helmet and head/ear phones. Helmet is in excellent overall condition, though has some minor fraying to one side strap seating, see photographs, but this does not detract. Inside is in good clean condition with issue label - code suggests circ 1942 - there is a stitch repair about 3/4 inch long on the rear right side, again does not detract at all. Still complete with wool chin strap. Head/ear phones are bakerlite and in excellent unchipped condition, no maker details or marks, this is not uncommon as many wartime head/ear phones were generally civilian bought. A nice example of an A9 flying helmet.
