This is an actual Veteran Firemans Association helmet from the Jamaica FD in the early days of New York City. This is a great helmet and one of my favorites in my collection of 250 plus helmets. The cut outs are red and the bottom cut out with "FD" in fancy script, is black in color, not blue as you may have seen elsewhere. The bottom panel says "FD" not VFA as some of the other companies did. Also of note is the font of the letters FD - they are fancy cut and do not match the rest of the letters. This is a good way to authenticate a helmet I have been told. This was done intentionally by the fire department to differentiate themselves. It is a 64 comb light weight parade helmet made by Cairns and Bro, as were all of the Veteran helmets in the company. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
