Helmet, M1, NCO, 90th Infantry Division, Normandy

Genuine WWII US M1 helmet, fixed bales, manufactured by McCord, shell number 198A. The insignia of the 90th Infantry Division has been painted on the front.

It seems that a coat of paint was applied after the war and later removed, thus discovering the division's insignia on the front and ETO style NCO's horizontal bar at the rear.

The first elements of the 90th ID landed on Utah Beach on D-Day. The division was subsequently engaged in the Battle of the Hedgerows in the Cotentin Peninsula.

A scarce battlefied relic found in Normandy many years ago.
