Description


Very uncommon complete ‘Barnstormer's’ flight gear, circa late 1920s to early 1930s. Included is a front quarter horsehide leather jacket with shearling collar & lining, (40" chest, 34.5" length, loose button in pocket); leather pilot's helmet/cap; unusual folding goggles; a wool scarf; leather 3-finger gloves/mittens; button fly pants which lace up to knees; and knee high leather boots. In very good condition, with scattered crazing to leather, mainly on coat and cap, and expected age wear. This ‘uniform’ is very similar to what was worn by Charles Lindbergh for his famous N.Y. to Paris flight in 1927. A scarce find as examples are rarely found complete. RRAuction COA.
