Helmet, M1, Camouflaged, Pierced, IMP Liner


Very nice genuine WWII US M1 helmet, fixed bales, manufactured by McCord, shell number illegible, early canvas straps with 1st type brass buckle and hook. The outer surface of the shell has been entirely covered with a dark green and russet camouflage paint applied with a paintbrush. At the rear, two impact marks are worthy of note, the largest one being about 0.3in x 0.4 in.

This amazing shell comes with its original liner, manufactured by International Molded Plastic, Inc. The light khaki web straps have been damaged but the leather sweatband is still present; OD-painted A washers. A yellow F has been painted inside. The leather chinstrap has been cut off yet both sections are still in place.

A great homogeneous set, in very good used condition.
