Wouldn't it be nice for somone to buy this relic, put it in a clear trophy case and have it displayed somewhere prominent in L30's quarters...maybe by the HW.? Truck office?...it would live on forever...

If I remember correctly, there was a long-time well-respected lieutenant in Ladder 30 named Dick Gilroy.  I know he was there in the '60s.
I notice from what you can see of the name inside the crown "R. G..."
Perhaps it was his helmet.  I believe he passed about 15 years ago.

Notice on the L30 helmet the "repair job" on the rear brim...very common in the war years era, and most likely done by Samson Zats in Queens who did all our repirs before the quartermaster system.

  Some FDNY scale models I made for Chief Larry Phillips are being sold on eBay. There are many models from his collection for sale but so far, only these 3 were made by me:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/FDNY-Searchlight-No-1-Mack-B-1-34-Custom-Built/323864418967      https://www.ebay.com/itm/FDNY-Ward-La-France-Engine-40-1-34-Scale-Custom-Built/223595598191    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Code-3-Kitbash-1-64-FDNY-TL-105/323726801608?hash=item4b5f9efac8:g:IWEAAOSweGpcgeIm
