    A recent acquisition from an antique store in Williamsburg, Virginia. I'm not a big US headgear collector but I do enjoy these Kelley helmets. I believe they are under appreciated This one even has a fingerprint in the paint (see last photo, just below maker mark). Click for enlarged photos.

    Enjoy

    Cool Kelley, the best thing about them is the light brown leather liner that is easy to write on and is occasionally soldier and unit marked.

    Interesting that you mention that! This one has "Williams" written on one tongue with an 8 digit number below it. I couldn't get it to show up on photos because it is written lightly. I may be able to put a full name with this helmet.

    A very nice helmet Todd, in fine order with just the right amount of wear. Leon.

    Great pick up. I really like how much of the texture remains on it.

    Thank you for the additional comments. It was fitting to find it on Pearl Harbor anniversary weekend.
