    Default MK 2 USN Taker Helmet

    Hi

    I recently picked up a nice original USN MK2 Talker helmet complete with chinstrap. On internet searches, and forums I came across information that one of the helmets had McCord and Firestone markings. Most if not all of the helmets I have seen either have been repainted many times by the nave and are unmarked, or they are marked USN --MK2 as mine is. Does anyone know if the McCord/firestone marked helmet is only a factory work in progress item, and finished product that was sent to the navy all had the --U.S.N. MK2 marking?
    Here is a link to the discussion with the McCord /firestone.
