1950s Louis Rosier helmet and goggles.
This original brown leather Geno helmet and goggles were used by Louis Rosier while driving for Talbot and Maserati (shown here in 250F s/n 2506 and at the 1953 Carrera Panamericana in Talbot-Lago T26GS). These items were obtained from the late Sergio Scaglietti who was a good friend of Louis. The helmet is inscribed in blue pen L’amitie avec toi Sergio est plus dur que ce casque (Sergio – our friendship is worth more than this helmet).
Included is a copy of a signed letter from Sergio. (LSC)
