For auction is what I believe to be a circa 1840 to 1860 all leather Fireman helmet. I do not know the country of origin, but believe it to be European. If anyone has any information to add, Please let me know and I will share it with others. Helmet features all leather construction with original brass chin strap. Most helmets I have found had a brass comb, this one has a heavy leather comb that does not feel hollow? The chin strap is covered with leather, and brass attached to it. All stitching is intact and tight, even inside the helmet. The inside of the neck cover is painted with letters; R.G.L. EAL, I'm sure that is somebody's name. I can find no other marks on helmet. Condition is very fine, showing much hard use. A very good looking helmet that will make a nice display item. Very low reserve.
