    Default Helmet heat stamp ID

    Hi folks hope you are all having a great Christmas. Just before the holiday I acquired another M1 shell. This one is a rear seam swivel bail with the later double locking clasp, anchor marked. The heat stamp is M335C. Im assuming postwar. Can anyone ID the year and maker? I'll try and post some pics.


    Cheers all and hears to a happy new year for everyone on the forum.

    That I think should be a McCord made pot, I believe the anchor stamp dates from the early to late 1960's, but impossible to get an exact date.
