    The helmet is not from 1915. That is the badge number of the fireman. The white 36 is Engine 36 Manhattan (located on 125th. St). This style front shield was used in the 1960s-1970s era.

    Love the helmet. Not to far away from ground zero. About 5 minutes to drive. Maybe 15 minutes to walk.

    railnsail is right...way newer than 1915 This is a Carins leather firehelmet Engine 36 Manhattan, a great find. Really nice helmet.
