    Good luck to all interested parties later, I would be happy if the helmets find a new owner. I am sure that these helmets no longer exist often in this form and type. I can well imagine that these helmets smelled gasoline in the 50s.

    I found a picture from this time of a rally where mechanics wear similar helmets with the probably same coat of arms sticker.

    The coats of arms on the helmets are with 100% certainty the first water stickers from Porsche.

    If someone drives historic races, there is of course also the possibility to restore the helmets inside and use the helmets for the races or the show, that would be fantastic.

    But even in a showcase, these helmets are a nice addition to a collection of a connoisseur.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    I found the number 56 in a helmet.

    I don't know if that's the size.

    The helmets are old and have to be in a display case for more you are not useful. They are really very very old.

    I searched for pictures from the 50s and 60s yesterday. The helmets will rather be in their mid-50s, the Porsche coat of arms is also the very first Porsche coat of arms ever, so the design that closes everything to an early period of Porsche history.

    70 years of evolution, the helmets do not fit anyone from our time unless he has a very small head.
