    Default NEED HELP! WW2 US M1 Helmet with Soldier ID. Possible to track down?

    So I recently picked up a WW2 Front Seam fixed Bale M1 Helmet for $15 from a guy who found it in a box with a bunch of other antiques when he moved into a new house. He wasn't sure if it was real or exactly what it was so that's why I got it for so cheap!! He told me it would have ended up in the dumpster along with all the other stuff left up in the attic so he's glad I was interested. Anyways, there is a name and number written inside the helmet. First in pencil "P Smith 980", then written over top with a marker "Smith 980". I am guessing the 980 is either a division number or a service number? Is there any way of tracking down a possible soldier who wrote this? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me out, as I do not have a clue on where to start searching. Thank you so much to whoever can give me info! Pictures are posted below

    Sadly, with that name, and with only three numbers to go on, research will be a needle and haystack sort of deal.

    Still a nice helmet and a good deal.
