ive been waiting for this M-1 to turn up since last week & it finally here & im not disappointed in anyway
this is another eBay buy it had gone round twice i guess no one else was interested & the first time round i dident have the money so the second time i see it i took a chance & went for it. it was on offer as a buy it now of $59.99 which was about £36.18 & including shipping came to just under £59 which to me was good. as you can see its a Korean war era lid with a WESTINGHOUSE liner, its had a hard life with a split up the front right where the front seam is, its a swivel bail with the straps just about hanging on & the metal work all rusted, it still has the original WW2 corking finish & is painted grey, theres no chance of a heat stamp as its to rusted in that area to see anything.
the liner is painted black with to my surprise the remains of some sort of decal ??????. the netting if original is not original the the helmet as it looks new & unused compared to the lid it self.
anyway guys there you go all opinions are welcome
