Recently picked this up online and a very happy with it! The stamp shows it to be a 1943 production by Inland (at least the liner). If someone is able to give a more specific date of manufacture (from the shell heat stamp) I would appreciate it!
This is my first foray into WW2 era M1's, I've noticed that a lot of helmets don't include leather sweatband or the neck nape. Is there a particular reason for this?
Thanks for looking!
