1950's Leather Racing Helmet - Extremely Rare - Mint Condition


Presented here is a racing cap / helmet from the Italian manufacturer, Boeri. This fantastic helmet appear to have never been used. It still has its original box. The helmet is comprised of black and white leather with protective padding built inside the helmet for protection when racing or participating in other sports that require head protection. There is an adjustable strap that fits below the chin with a latch strap. Boeri has been producing sport helmets since the early 1950's and this is a stunning example of the history of their brand. This helmet is best suited for smaller head sizings, though it can fit a variety of head sizes. It is very rare to find a helmet of this nature at all, but to find one in near flawless condition is quite rare. A museum worthy example of the history of hats and helmets. Stunning example for any collection. Measurements: Distance from Front Center to Back Center - 10.5 inches Top of Helmet to Bottom of Side of Helmet - 9 inches There is some stretch throughout depending upon desired fit that allows for a variety of head shapes to function nicely with the helmet. 22 inches at the widest circumference around the head without extra stretch.
