    Great helmet Mo. I have two in the collection and really enjoy them. I almost got one of them for free from a friends family estate but the auction company had already listed it on the website and I had to pay to get it. That stunk! But yours is a great example.

    Nice helmet. Looks like a twin of mine. Only problem with these helmets is that they take up a lot of space in a display case :-(

    I had another as a teenager, but went off to college and it was gone when I got back. Think my nephews played "Army" with it and lost it....

    thats one of the later production M1917A1 helmets by McCord Radiator Co

    probably dates from around late 1930's - 1940

    the M1917A1 is one of my favorite WWII helmets, these were also worn by US Coastal Defense
