    Default M1 Fixed-Bale 1950's MP Repaint

    Hi guys, just posting a little something I bought at a gun show last weekend. This is my first helmet of 2011.

    It's a fixed-bale helmet that was repainted in the 50's to be an MP parade helmet. It is named on the inside of the shell to an 'SP5 Guinn'. The inside of the shell retains its original WWII-era paint. Unfortunately, the spot on the shell where the numbers would be is rusty and so I can't read them at all. It has no chinstrap on the liner or the shell. The liner is a Westinghouse. This helmet is nothing too special but it was a fixed-bale, so why not get it?

    Enjoy!

    P.S. Sorry for the bad pictures. I can't figure out how to work my camera on my new phone properly.

    Over the past few months i been having a great fasination of U.S. Mp helmets and armbands. In December i purchased a Vietnam MP helmet. WW2 is much harder to come by in good condition.

    Thanks for posting yours. It appears to be very nice.
