Quick Overview

OD3 shade fabric chincup with US stamped on the body and four zinc alloy eyelets in each strap. The chin support is attached to the body with two bar tacks. Another bar tack to connect the ends of the body is between two eyelets. This was the chinstrap that came right after the five hole fabric chinstrap but before the final version with four brass eyelets was introduced. It is well described on page 31 of Michel DeTrez's excellent book American Paratrooper Helmets. Although the tentative of August 1944 stipulates brass eyelets a number of the earliest production of these four hole chincups still had zinc alloy eyelets. These fabric chincups are hard to find!

Very good condition.
