    Smile Hi..newbie w/ a Q about an old helmet...

    Hi everybody!

    First off, Thanks! for all you do!
    Second, I am not a firefighter.

    Third, I have a very old (I think) fire helmet that I cannot seem to identify. If I could get some assistance with it I would very much appreciate it. It doesn't have the long back like the ones you all have now. If you would like to see it I would be glad to email you the pics. I'm not certain it was used for fighting fiires at all because of its shape. There is however FDNY and a govt stamp inside the rim. The helmet is steel? Painted red and has a firefighter insignia on the front. There are other things I can tell you but probably better to just see the pics. Email me please if you think you can tell me anything about it.

    Lastly, If you tell me exactly what it is I have ... I'll bake you cookies

    Thank You John.
    You've Got Mail. I really hope to know more about it. I won't have it much longer... long story... but I will be turning it over to someone else soon and just wanted to know something since I have had it for about 12 yrs now.

    Thanks John for the great info! I stuck it on eBay to see what other people might know about it. It's a real funky auction. I emailed you but don't know if you got it. If you want to see the listing you can search haunted helmet and it will pop right up. Like I said in the email, I'm not going to put the link here. This is not my forum to litter with such things as eBay. But would love to hear from you in there! If anyone else has any more knowledge about this helmet I would love to hear about it also! Just send it to the auction for me? Thanks! Have a great nite

    Default RE: Haunted Helmet

    Greetings,

    It was interesting to see your helmet and read the story about it, good luck on getting rid of the ghost and the helmet once and for all.
