    A dozen or so...it varies as I buy and sell..I have a few that will never be sold, like the white LT lid above.

    Yes - back in the day, mostly all of the departments in Dutchess County, NY ran white helmets for all officers...Poughkeepsie, and a few others still do. In the PFD it works, because everyone knows...hoever, a few of the mutual aid companies around my vollie town do it and it does create confusion..

    My firts year as a Lieutenant, I wore an all white helmet. That particular department changed over to white front on black helmet for LT's and captains.

    We run black for FF and LT, red for Cap, and white for Chief. Everyone gets tan turnouts. Interesting to hear about everyone else 's system.

    OK...I am 58 minutes away from 18 days off and a family trip from NY to Florida...time on the beach in Daytona to celebrate 11 years of marriage to an amazing woman, and taking the kids to Disney....so I am feeling generous..here are some pics of my collection.

    Here is an old 5a i aquired from a guy a work,,all original and in great shape. I recently added a pair of vintage, yet never issued Bourkes. I had this on ebay this week, but it didnt sell.

    I do not like the highlighting of the scrollwork, but it does add character.

    This is a large N5a I got cheap off of ebay, redid, and sold for a healthy profit. This lid fit great and I wish i kept it, and if it didnt have the thick gloss black paint, I may have lept it.

    Question Quick Question................

    Guys..... I don't mean to get this thread off track, but does anyone who has been here a bit remember where we had the Thread about our Personal Vehicles?? It had gotten up to more than a few pages, with everyone posting pics of their ride....... Including the Show Stopper, Gonzo's Mustang.....

    Anyway, I tried the Search thing last night and didn't find it.......

    Mid 90s N5A


    1987 N6A


    1995 N5A


    Mid 1990s N6A


    1987 N5A in front - 2008 N5A in rear


    2008 N5A


    All helmets above were either fully refurbished or refinished. All except the 1987 N5A had brand new "old style" brass installed. I do not particularly care for the new style look that Cairns introduced in 1998. Any helmet that comes my way usually come out with a retro look, no matter what year of mfg.

    My Houston, not too long after the last refinish. I basically just cleaned it and sprayed over all the other paint/crud.
