VINTAGE HERO ROCKET MAN HELMET - in diameter. The helmet is a 2-part Fiberglas shell construction composed of main conical helmet and faceplate, textured and then painted silver overall. The faceplate features two eye socket openings for lenses and a wire screened mouth port. The faceplate is attached with one central ¾ in. hinge at the top of the faceplate and the sides are secured to the hull of the helmet by two old-fashioned rain jacket snaps at either side. Internally there are metal brackets for attaching a helmet liner, rubber chin pad and slides above and below the eyeholes that would have held lenses in place. “T. Coffin” is written in red grease pencil at the peak of the inside of this helmet after Tristran Coffin, the actor who played Jeff King (The Rocket Man)! Some chipping from age and production use, otherwise in excellent condition.
