    Default Korea m1?

    Hey guys,

    This m1 is being sold as a korean war issued helmet. It does have the chinstrap buttons, and the hole in the front of the liner, which I beleive was only there during ww2 and Korea? However, the suspension looks very new and so does the painting on the actual shell. I would be on the white markings being post war applied? Liner is said to be dated 1953.
    I'd like some opinions on it, so I can better learn to judge m1 helmets for my self.
    Also, the seller is asking $45

    Thanks!
    Quinn

    the chin strap look at the J hook its to wide to be the US version.

    the liner is US 1950's though the use of the eyelet to the front was stopped from the late 50's onwards

    The liner would be a Westinghouse micarta division liner.It looks to be in very good clean condition and well worth $40 for the liner alone imo.As for the shell...odd colour if it is US.Does the shell have heatstamp number?

    Looking at the shell, it's a euro clone, shiny rim, rear seam, the lack of texture and colour point to that too.

    the liner is not bad but with the split at the back you could probably pick up a better one for that price.
