Czech Republic Fire Department Vintage Metal HelmetA unique item for your collection of firefighter memorabilia from the collection of my father, a deceased firefighter. This is an authentic helmet from the Czech Republic . As best I can ascertain, it is circa 1960-70's. It was purchased in the Czech Republic by a family member in 1995 (+/-). At the time the helmet was used, the Czech Republic was still part of Czechoslovakia . The leather suspension system inside the helmet is still in very good condition. The leather is obviously old, but it is not cracked or hardened. From the edge of the brim, the helmet is 10 ¼ inches front to back and 9 ¼ inches side to side. Please examine the pictures. They are part of the description. Email any question or any information that you may have about this item.
