I picked this one up many years ago in a junk shop in a small town in Connecticut. It is a front seam, Schlueter shell, heat stamp number 439 ("A"?) (click on the eighth picture 2x and you will be able to make that out, unfortunately the numbers are up side down), named on the shell in the hand rendered emblem, and on the Firestone liner in block stenciled letters. The emblem on the shell seems to me to connote use by an engineer. It was issued, but apparently hardly used. The preservation of the cork texture is remarkable. The sewn on eleven rib chin strap has blackened hardware, and is flawless. The liner is also complete, but the leather liner chinstrap is dry and broken. Also, the sweat band is in backwards, but this is exactly how I got the helmet many years ago. The NARA-AAD database lists a number of E. Goodrow's from Connecticut who served during WWII, but none listed have the middle initial "P". One of them, however, was born in 1900, so maybe he was stationed in the rear, or never left the States, which could explain the lack of apparent wear on the helmet. I guess I will never know. Anyway, it is in what I would describe as near mint minus condition. Hope you like it. Jim G.
