Collection RML (unaccessioned) General
Description A leather miners helmet made in two parts. The top is cut with flaps that are riveted onto the crown. A vinyl? headstrap inside is attached by tape to the crown. A webbing of tape on the inside would have held the helmet away from direct contact with the head. The leather has been painted and remnants of brown, black and silver paint still remain. Was used by a gold miner.
Found under a house at Conders Bend when it was demolished. Donated by Val Gifford.
