Quick Overview

NAVY grey painted McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with Hawley fibre liner. The steel shells has its orginal 11 row weave OD3 chinstrap with raised bar brass buckle. The strap at the buckle has a tear. The steel shell shows a considerable amount of rust. The grey paint is flakey but holds firmly. The heat stamp can no longer be read. There is a pencil mark (name?) on the inside. The Hawley liner features rayon suspension and rectangular aluminum washers. The fixed leather chinstrap is no longer present. The use of aluminum and brass indicate this is a liner of the earliest production. These materials were shortly after replaced by steel. The steel shell and liner and not in great shape but this is an original NAVY grey painted set which was found on a ship not too long ago. Original NAVY helmets are hard to find, especially with a fibre liner.

Fair condition.
