I am Kenneth and I've got a little question for a while now.
What I have here is a M1 helmet.
I've posted this one on many fora by now, and nobody has been able to provide any conclusive material on the matter.
See this helmet does not have a seam... It's seamless. It's rim is part of the helmet itself. Like it has been rolled inwards.
The bales are fixed on top of this rolled rim. Probably because there is no fear of any rim comming loose or un- fastened, thus losing the bale.
There are no markings stamped in the helmet.
On of the straps seems to be originaly mounted on there. It's the small type.
The other strap is in a darker OD color, but is clearly sewn on by hand later on in it's life.
The liner that accompanied it is a beat up Westinghouse, where the headband has been hand sewn unto the neck strap.
Below are the pictures. I haven't gotten any clue about what it is. Never heard of a M1 helmet with the rim rolled inwards.
Below are the pictures, and trust me when I say that if someone is able to tell me what it is , even just saying that it is a worthless waste of steel from XXX- country, I would be immensly gratefull!
If you think you know what it is, please provide a picture to back it up!
Again, thanks in advance for helping!
