Fire helmet metal shield Fairmont tiger holder 1852
- Source: eBay
This is right out of my own collection. I have owned this helmet for at least 30 years. This helmet is quite nice. Has a tiger for a finial holder metal frontshield which is in vrey good condition. The organizational date of 1852 is on the rear brimliner is in tact and the paper size label and the maker Cairns and Brothers N.Y. is inside the crown. The tiger has been bent and probably can be straightened out. I believe Fairmont was from Norristown Pa. These metal frontshield helmets are getting nearly impossible to find. This would make a great addition to anyones collection.
