    Default Corporals M1, front seam fixed bail.

    Hello all,

    My mom found this gem at an estate sale a couple of months ago. It came with a foot locker that had a lot of interesting stuff, although this is the top find. The guy never was sent over seas, but that doesn't matter a whole lot when you find a complete helmet, plus the locker! I have to give cudos to my mom for her sharp eye, and knowing what kind of stuff I like to collect!

    What a beautiful helmet... I think you meant to say front seam though, not rear.
