M-1 helmet with fibre liner

M-1 helmet with fibre liner

Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed' bail' steel shell with heat stamp 49B 3. It has its original textured paint and OD3 shade 11 row weave chinstraps with early cast raised bar buckle. The liner is a 3rd type Hawley with cotton suspension and removable leather chinstrap. The leather chinstrap shows no signs of ever been put over the visor of the helmet. The steel shell has three stress cracks which are only to be expected in an early production helmet.
This helmet is 100% original since WWII. Nothing has been added or changed. That makes it a rare gem and a perfect helmet that deserves a special place in a collection. If you look for that superb example of a WWII US helmet this is it. View the many photos.

Very good condition.
