    Cool Found the match! Front seam, swivel bail shell

    When strolling on the antique market again, i suddenly got this indonesian military police shell. A suitable shell for My 1st US liner - Indonesian army MP liner
    And i really excited because this is front seam, swivel bail shell! Really lucky and fortunate indeed.








    Unfortunately it’s really impossible to search the hear stamp. The paint is too thick.
    And i see the remain of red paint?



    P*M

    The bails



    The happy couple


    May they live happily ever after.

    This is a similar helmet looks like in 1960's

    Front seams are rare in general, but fixed bails are much harder to find. Still a good solid helmet to pick up whenever you can.

    How about transitional shell like this one? Is it rare?
    Because in here, it's easier to find front seam-fixed bail. Wartime made rear seam-swivel bail is really difficult to obtained because euro-clone m1 is really abundant.

    I'd say transitional is rare. I've only seen a few and I'm not limiting that to just American helmets as I've seen traditional German as well.

    Ah, i see. Thank you.
    I guess my only way to obtained that wartime rear seam swivel bail is by searching the stainless steel rim ones. I guess i have to check that shells in the market one by one.

    Jeeze how lucky is that to match it up, you must mated it up with the original shell. I wouldn't go to say that a stainless front seam swivel shell is rare, but what you have there is rare! Lovely finds
