    Default Anyone have a Navy Lt helmet?

    I have one example at home and noticed that I see very few. (Only seen about 6 or 7 total) however I have the two horizontal bars with the star variation of the emblem but have seen army captains bars which traditionally are the emblem of a navy lt. I just bought that traditional variation and am waiting for it in the mail, and due to pictures it could be 50/50. But I'm curious to see others examples of this seemingly rare m1 helmet. Both variations of the emblem welcome.

    Me too. It's got a couple busted liner straps but I can deal with it. It's probably my best helmet. I'm hoping the new one I bought comes tomorrow so I can post pictures. I paid 75 and it had awful pictures but I took a shot in the dark. Navy blue like this, swivel bale, complete liner with leather chinstrap, two dents in the done of the helmet, and navy lieutenant bars on the helmet and liner. I can't see if they're original however until it arrives. I sure hope I pulled a fast one and scored. The guy selling it ended the auction early for me, thought it was a captain helmet but navy LT has same ensign as an army captain. So good on my part.
