    Default Korean War M1 helmet

    Here I have a McCord 1241D which I date to March 45. The liner is a Micarta Westinghouse 1952/1953 hard to tell. I have the M-Q1 cold weather field cap paired with it for display reasons. The cover I made from a period 50's surplus sandbag. It took me some time to get it to look like that as it was originally a dark green. Many months of leaving it out on the washing line exposed to the the great British weather and jumping on it dragging it around my yard 😂😂😂 my wife thinks I'm crazy and I'm starting to believe her 💁🏻. Thanks for looking guys.

    What's a good price for one like this? I found one at an antique shop locally today, but was unsure of the price being on target. Don't recall what they were asking though, but it didn't seem too much.
