    Well IMO you did not overpay and I actually had this one on my watch list as I found it an interesting example the purist M-1 collector may not find it appealing but it is a well known fact that liners and components were swapped out in these helmets to keep them serviceable I would display it on my shelf.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Is there an outline of a cross on each side?

    Hi James, are you talking about the chin strap on the liner or helmet?, I have another late war m1(72-73 belong to my dad) that has the same chin strap from what I can see,I do have a veitnam era chin strap that I can add to it if that's the case

    James is referring to the chinstrap on the helmet a strange mix of parts this one and very probably done by a collector and or novice but one never knows.
