Rare, Fantastic 1920s-30s Original X-AC Adult-Sized Leather Football Helmet and Original Box.
Lot 71. Rare, Fantastic 1920s-30s Original X-AC Adult-Sized Leather Football Helmet and Original Box. The leather of this well made black helmet remains soft and pliable. It shows minimal wear, with the X-AC logo and “K-70” model designation still bold on the front. The suspension makes this helmet especially interesting. It consists of four pieces of leather, possibly hand-cut, in a modified triangular shape and then held together by a strip of leather. This design remains intact. The helmet lining, apparently wool, is undamaged, although somewhat soiled. The original chin strap is present. A paper label on one side of the box displays well. The box lid is present but separated, and the box has chips and tears. It grades f+ to g, and the helmet, a problem-free ex-m. Winning Bid $533.
