    A nice post war reissued M-1 probably Korean war use you'll also need a nape strap as well to complete the liner as for the heat stamp number its probably being obscured by the over paint.

    Ah you're lucky. I was the other bidder on that helmet. It looks really nice. I managed to win a cheaper one that day anyway so all is good.

    Nice helmet. Nape straps are cheap enough, and there are plenty about. Luckily with that lid, you don't need to search for a green buckle liner chinstrap, a black buckle will be ok to make it "right." Is anybody else shocked about the prices on the green buckle ones at the moment?
    Anyway, nice lid mate.

    your not wrong there mate for one of those you're looking at anything between $100-$200 you can buy a decent complete M-1 for that sort of price but i guess that's the way these things go as original parts start to get harder to get hold of.

    I think I saw a nape strap somewhere, I'll have to go look, I did find a green buckled chinstrap, the black ones seem to be more expensive so far, I thought it was rediculous that someone paid pver 70 dollars for 2 of them.

    Glad it worked out Matt, I saved money buying this one, or I would have just bought a liner and chin straps, but then I would have had to get them sewn.

    I'm going to put a USMC helmet cover on it, so not having any cork wasn't that important to me. I'm planning on making a mannequin in honor of my dad who was at Iwo Jima, but was wounded, and didn't have much to bring home. So I've been scouring sites trying to get a basic load, most original so far, I might get repro canteen covers, the real ones are insane. I thought for my first war time lid it was a pretty good deal, I'm happy with it, thanks guys.

    I found one that the guywe says has an anchor stamp on the buckle, does this mean it was navy? or could it be danish? Did they use M1s too? I had a winchester M1 rifle like that, Danish used, anchor on the site cover.
