New guy here and first time M1 buyer. I picked up a Shlueter M1 last weekend and I am curious as to when this helmet was made. I know that it is probably late war due to the fact that inside the liner there is a name and serial number of a past owner. Did a quick internet search and the guy 's name came up with and had him being on active duty starting on 3-8-46.The heat stamp has the numbers 468A and the usual 'S'. It is a rear seam, swivel bale and appears to have the original paint (dark O.D?). The liner was made by CAPAC and has the number '7' and possibly an unusual '1' next to it. The khaki suspension has the 'A' clasp and it also appears to be original in that it has the shoestring that ties the webbing together. It is missing the front leather chin strap but the rear one is there and it is the type that has two curved prongs and the color of the strap is more of an O.D. color rather than khaki. Thank you for any replies. Jon
