"REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR" CIVIL DEFENSE HELMET
"REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR" CIVIL DEFENSE HELMET \n\nWhite-painted steel civil defense helmet, marked on the rear inside rim as being manufactured by McCord, as well as "U.S. Gov't Property O[ffice of] C[ivil] D[efense]", With a grey webbing liner and chin strap. Most interestingly, the front of the helmet has been painted with a large 48-star American flag, with the slogan "Remember Pearl Harbor" in red paint on the front rim. The rear of the helmet bears the additional slogan "Avenge December 7", also in red paint. The interior of the helmet dome bears the pencil inscription "6-4-1942 Alex Candelori 35 Colleg St Trenton NJ". This may record the artist and the date on which the helmet was decorated, although this cannot be confirmed. Shows some surface oxidation and minor chipping to the paint at the extremities, else very good. 200-300 Alexander Historical Auctions
