    Well, it was apparently sold.

    I believe it's of the Vietnam period - what I could see of it - cover & straps.
    Looked in very good condition and probably in the ball park.........

    You've done well on your first militaria purchase.........!

    There are several guys here who 'specialize' in American M1 helmets,
    and hopefully they will pick up on this thread and give you
    more information on it.
    Regards,

    This can be quite an interesting, worthwhile and addictive hobby !

    Below is a typical WWII M1 - this one has been repainted.
    Khaki coloured chinstraps are sewn to the 'bales' which
    were usually the type that are 'fixed', or non-swivelling.
    There are several types of netting.
