    Default Used leather helmet

    I am looking to purchase a used leather Sam Houston n6a. I have searched ebay, with no luck. I am looking to refurbish one and place in service as I have done in the past. Also if anyone knows of a refurbish company that may say helmets please pass on the info. Thanks and stay safe.

    The best search words I have used on ebay is
    Leather Fire Helmet(I think there are 3 or 4 N6A's listed now)
    Also:
    Cairns and Brother
    Fire Hat
    Fire Helmet
    Fire Chief

    there are plenty of things you can try and a lot of helemts are listed under very obscure titles....
    i am sure you know that the N6A is a sam houston model....try that too.
    Lastly, some people improperly list N6A's as a New Yorker....Look for the grey, not black, inner dome....

    Be carefull with buying any piece of used safety equipment, You can never be sure of the TRUE history.

    Yes, true.
    Thats why I just decided to spend the extra $100 and not worry about its history.

    I did notice at least one N6A on ebay, but it was new.

    That's the idea...Buy it new and give it your own history.

    True you don't always know the history of a helmet you guy off ebay but if it is in A+ shape and is at a bargain then there is no reason not to buy one from there.
