    Great M-1s, the first one must have cost a fair amount. The cover looks very minty!
    I recently passed up buying a WWII era with a blue sweatband, can anyone fill me in on why they were that colour? Any significance?

    those types of sweatbands were made with vinyl rather then leather & are very hard to come by check here Three Vinyl Sweatbands - U.S. Militaria Forum

    thanks for all the comments!!

    Well the McCord with Hood liner and blue sweat band (near future)
    is now in the collection. The addiction continues as I pulled the trigger on this one over the weekend.

    M-1 Helmet with early Hawley Fiber Liner (1st pattern), Fixed Bale and Front seam. Still has original Chin Strap and has a full sweat band.

    Question - when did the US start putting the full sweat band on the early Fiber liners? Late 42? I know the 1st pattern had the half sweatband.

    another fine lid to add to the collection

    the sweatband was probably replaced at some point in its life with what ever was available at the time.
