Vatican Seal Sffd San Francisco Cairns Leather Fire Helmet Pope Chaplain For Sale

Vatican Seal Sffd San Francisco Cairns Leather Fire Helmet Pope Chaplain

This is an unfinished project: a Cairns 5A (no impact liner) Fire Helmet, Yellow and White, with a custom hand painted helmet front, “Chaplain” “S.F.F.D.”, with chinstrap loops and chin strap. The yellow helmet has two quarters of the crown painted white, identical to the SFFD Truck Company helmets. There is the beginning of gold on the ribs of the crown. It is a size 7 ¼ -7 ¾ Large adjustable; Nomex chin strap (non-SFFD); hanging d-ring. This helmet was not completed, nor issued, and was not worn by the SFFD Chaplain. There is no Bourkes, however, the holes are there with Bourke screws and nuts. With the beginning of Conclave in the coming weeks, I thought it was time it found a better home. Oh, and the two other helmets are not for sale; just had them in for the family shot. Lastly, for you Cairns experts, it is a Series “O” as indicated on the crown decal.

As noted, the helmet front has “Chaplain” and “S.F.F.D.” in gold, with the Vatican Seal or Coat of Arms, consistent with the seal used by the Roman Catholic Church also referred to as the Holy See. There is great history to this seal, with much symbolism of the keys, how they are placed under the papal tiara, all of which you can Wikipedia or ask your local Archbishop over an Irish Coffee.

So, if you want something cool to wear whilst yelling, “Habemus Papam!” this month, this is your helmet! Paypal Only, and please no returns (this needs to find its way to a happy owner).
