Can anyone tell me what the deal is with Chrome M-1 helmets? I know they date back to WWII, Iíve seen some that state they are Korea era and, if I recall, they even wore them in my navy boot camp color guard (Iíll have to dig out those old graduation day pix) dating as late as 1981, mostly called parade helmets. A lot of what I have been reading states that they are as rare as a cool day on the sun. Is this true? Iíve got a kid down the street that might be looking to get ride of his post WWII chrome M-1 and liner. I have not seen it yet but my son has seen it and says itís in good shape. Iím going to have him bring it over to the house, hopefully in the next few days so Iím trying to get a feel for if these are $40 lids or $240 lids.
Assuming Korea or later, and all in one piece, can anyone shed some light on the rarity (if at all) of these chrome domes and what the approximate value range might be?
Thanks in advance.
