This old miner's helmet is made of canvas cloth coated with a hardening agent. The weave of the fabric can be seen all over the surface. The rings that hold straps and other cloth elements are all intact, secure and undamaged. These appear to be made of celluloid. There are two pieces of khaki material attached to the two side loops. There are a few scrapes on the top from being use. There are no cracks, chips or other damage identified. The helmet is in as found condition.
