Nice helmet. Rich A. in Pa.
1969 Shelby GT-500 King of the Road
Knowledge is power, guard it well.
Thanks I would not mind finding a M3 , I like the look of them since they are more like a M1 in shape.

Great flak helmet. In beautiful shape.
AmericanKraut, not trying to be picky with you but the correct terminology for the AAF flak helmets is M3 and M5 not B3 and B5. The chronological sequence of the AAF flak helmets was: M3, M4, M4A2, and finally the M5. This list does not include the T3 series test helmets or the H-28-CL helmet.
That was a mistake from looking at B3 jackets too long the past week ... I got too much on my mind haha
Very nice helmet. Somewhat on topic, does anyone know where replacement chinstraps can be found for an M3 Flak helmet?
A beauty! Very impressive indeed.
As far as I know only McCord made these.

[/SIZE]Have a look at my 20+ (so far, work in progress) albums for lots of M1's, rare liners and other stuff, including WW2British helmets, Falklands battlefield pickup helmets and let me know what you think!
I miss this one.
Great helmet very nice condition,
I missed this one as well - Congrats on a great lid.
