    Nice early McCord fixed bale with a really nice looking Hawley liner Fantastic! as far as the emblems those where installed post war Korean maybe, you see this a lot during that time period on some helmets usually Civilian civil service or military Volunteer helmets, its a legit piece.

    it might be a USAAF officers hat emblem the same emblem is on a NCO's wheel cover/crush cover that is backed by a round brass disc and is smaller. the officers version is alittle bigger and does not have the disc accompanying it. So it might be a officers cover emblem, I cant tell if that's brass or pewter color Im not to good with distinguishing color variances.
