    Dominick, please upload photos directly to the forum instead of using photobucket.

    It looks like you are after an original WWII M1 helmet. Please read through these threads:

    Rough guide to the US M-1 liner & makers
    Reference web sites & Books

    When you are done, you should have a good idea of what to look for!

    As Mo has pointed out if you don't upload the photos by the forum uploader they will drop off and make this thread completely pointless in the future apart from all the good links that have been posted.

    The poll is completely pointless now !!
