    Thanks Timothy I hate to talk money but I have an opportunity to purchase it from a seller he is asking $100.00 Cdn for helmet and liner does this seem like a fair price I do realize of course I will need to source a good period liner for it though.

    Hi Mark,

    Can you post some close-up shots of the paint? Also is there a "S" stamped under the lot number.

    $100 doesn't sound bad at all.

    Thank you and regards,
    Taka

    I'd say good price as much as the M-1 pots have gone up there are a couple stores here where I see the WW2 liners going for about twenty five to fifty dollars depending on the condition of them I need to get around to picking up one myself. timothy

    From the pics Mark the shell looks in top form and with hardly little use,the liner is a P64 M1 Helmet Liner produced between 1964-1969,if shipping and customs is on top of the $100 then its an expensive item to own,baring in mind you still have to find and maybe purchase an original liner,and they wont be an original set................
    With Regards Jake.

    I managed to make a deal with the seller and purchased this M-1 for $60.00 dollars which IMO is more than a fair price for this example so now the fun part trying to source a good liner .
