Another little gem to the collection,but had to sell a couple to soften the blow.
one of the last McCord Fixed Bales produced heatstamp 697B around sept 43.
The hardware is blackened steel replacing Brass from july 43.
Has a stenciled name to rear and remains of Yankee logo to the front.
The liner is a late 42 Firestone made with unpainted steel A washers.
sweatband is a minty green 43 made with clear production stamps.
Nape also clearly marked.
The leather chinstrap is dry and twisted but is of the second olive drab on steel type.
Hope you like it.has that nice honest combat worn look to it.
Thanks in advance..............
