SOLD!29th helmet with previous 327th markings
$2,750.00 Sold Out
Here we have a wonderful painted 29th fixed loop helmet! What is unique about this set is there are older 327th GIR markings peaking through the paint on each side. 29th insignia shows obvious age cracking as we all love to see as these are faked so often. I would presume that this helmet originally belonged to a 327th Glider rider, but was lost. It was subsequently picked up by a 29er and field repainted with what almost looks like a textured paint and a net added immediately there following. The 29th insignia was added at some point after the field repaint. Looking at the pics, you can obviously tell that this is an original set that has been together forever. Both the chinstraps and the net have been lost to time unfortunately. This is a rare opportunity to own a helmet with such markings.
