SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (1998) - Main Cast Autographed Paratrooper Helmet
A cast-autographed paratrooper helmet from Steven Spielberg's World War II epic Saving Private Ryan. Members of the 101st Airborne, including Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), wore their helmets in battles throughout Normandy.

The steel M1 helmet features a specialist paratrooper liner with a leather chin strap secured within. A white 'spade' insignia is painted on either side, indicating it was worn by a member of Ryan's unit, the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. The helmet features autographs written in blue marker, which were gathered by a senior crew member on set; it bears the autographs of director Steven Spielberg and cast members Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg and Jeremy Davies. A final autograph is believed to be that of Giovanni Ribisi. Distressed for use, the helmet remains in very good condition. Dimensions: 29 cm x 23.5 cm x 20 cm (11 1/2'' x 9 1/4'' x 8'')
