Helmet, M-1917, 1st Infantry Division, Cantigny
Superb genuine WWI US Army M-1917 Brodie helmet, featuring a nice 1st Infantry Division insignia painted on the front. Another insignia has been painted on the rear but later covered with paint.
Retains its fragile liner. Leather chinstrap is damaged.
An amazing American Expeditionary Force shell in good, used condition -- don't miss it!
