    Four variants of chinstrap buckle hardware.
    1-Raised Brass Buckle with subtle profile.(known as the M17A Kelly Helmet chinstrap).usually found on very early M1's.
    2-Raised Brass Buckle.(most commonly found on Helmets within the ETO.1941-1943.
    3-Flat blackened Brass type.used first half of 1943,then again after June 1944.

    Thanks Bud,I know its not the biggest collection out there,but space is a serious issue at my place,and with prices on the up,trying to afford one of these in totally original spec isn't easy at all,slow progress moving forward,take care..........

    Thanks James and Tim,I was within touching distance of those St Clair and Hood Liners a few weeks back then just like that they were thrusted out of sight,oh well can only keep on trying,still love the one's I do have and they all show many differant variations with the paint schemes and hardware,all Fixed Bales date between july 42-september 43,three have the dimple on the rim between the Bales,unfortunately three have no leather chinstraps,which is a real shame,but at a premium I'll have to live without them for the time being................
    With Regards Jake.
