An original helmet used in the production of Saving Private Ryan, the 1998 war epic directed by Steven Spielberg.
Helmets such as this can be seen worn by medics throughout the movie, this helmet was supplied to the production by Academy Costumes and is of plastic construction, these custom made helmets being used in lesser numbers than the metal examples. The helmet features the distinctive red cross insignia to the front and is accompanied by an original genuine vintage helmet liner, this stamped to the interior 'US ACAD' for Academy Costumes and hand inscribed to the band with the name 'PORTER J.O'.
The helmet measures approximately 11" x 9.5" x 7" and remains in excellent production used condition exhibiting some minor surface wear consistent with use during filming, generally fine.
A highly displayable artefact from this highly regarded modern day classic which was the recipient of five Academy Awards.
