A very fine helmet of the RLB, the Reichs Luftschutz Bund, or Air Defense Organization of the Third Reich. The helmet is a Model 1934 civil style, with exterior field gray paint that is approximately 95% intact, with just some minor spots of paint loss. The RLB decal on the front of the helmet is close to 100% intact, with simply some minor scratches. The interior leather liner is quite clean and complete, with the liner having the small leather tongues in the rear to which a protective neck flap could be attached. The full leather chin strap is present. Overall excellent condition and a very uncommon helmet.
