Next to collecting german helmets I decided to begin collecting american M1 helmets. I have one so far. Nice frontseam swivel bail with heatstamp well below number 1.000 coming with a nice net and Firestone liner.
Today however something arrived by post. I bought it for 20 euros including shipment. I can see it is a good frontseam fixed bail. the paint has let go of the rim as I believe it should. However it is in rough condition. The heatstamp is there But hardly readable. The cork has almost totally gone. But I believe it to be Original. But what about the liner?
Any thoughts? I must say I think it is post war. Maybe Dutch or Belgian? I live in Holland so it is very possible. The marking N is one I never heard off. And can't find anything on it online. Probably post war, but for 20 euros it is not bad to get an Original shell right? Being it in bad shape
Thanks for any thoughts!
