Article about: it all looks to be good the liner is a nice early Nam era version the shell & straps looked good as for the cover there is a way of dating it from the from the stamp on the brown side. t
sorry missed those links i personally would not touch the helmet its been mess with too much for my liking as for the chin strap it looks ok & would suite the condition of the NAM helmet it may even be a WW2 chin strap but better pic's would be needed ?
@ steve(walkwolf) i know its a shame they went up in price i wish i could have got some before they did ,i wish my helmet was only 10 dollars then i would have so many by the way that picture is that your collection ?
@ Steve(walkwolf) I know its a shame they went up in price. I wish I could have got some before they did - i wish my helmet was only 10 dollars then I would have so many - By the way, that picture
is that your collection ?
Yes, some of them - mostly 50's and 60's era M1's there.
I posted the shot for Nick quite a while ago.
I'll get around to photographing/posting some
proper WWII M1's eventually.........!
M-1's can be very addicting as there are so many variations and are still reasonably affordable, providing you are not only interested in minty WWII lids. Myself, I like them a little salty, in the USN sense, they have a story to tell. I have stumbled over a few, along with a couple from the VN era. Got a couple WWII shells also, waiting to be mated up with period liners, have a period net for one and will probably look for a different variation of net for the other......yes, M-1's can be very addicting. And then there is the dozen or so clones you can collect as well....
@mysonsdad yea they sure are ! , ok so nick i got the helmet and it has stamped on the inside of the shell MWA 22 what does that mean ? also i can post pictures right now my INTERNET run out and is really slow ,so yea that what is says in the shell ,is there any way to tell what year the helmet liner and shell are ? thanks
