Fixed Bale M1 with 1953 USMC Cover, Vet Provenance

Article about: Hi guys, This was another recent Ebay M1 find. I didn't plan on buying another helmet for a while, but this one came up at a steal of a price, so I jumped on it. The helmet is a fixed bale M

    Nice helmet.
    I would just point out that the KW ended in 53 so the cover would not likely have been used there.
    Also, how do you know the dog tag and arm band are matched with the helmet?
    Someone could have put them together to sell?
    Unless there is a name or something inside the helmet to match them up?
    Maybe Eric found the right guy who owned the dog tag and arm band.
