    Default Please Post your M1s of 2013 !!!

    Hi Members,

    I know it is a tough decision to post just one, so you guys are more than welcome to post more than one.

    However, they gotta be 2013.

    Let's share your best M1 Helmets of 2013 !

    Cheers!
    Taka

    Here We Go!

    I only have this helmet photos available.
    It's a front seam M1 with a 2nd type Hawley Liner(Triangular fixers with square buckle chin-strap).
    The M1 was from Marine Fighting Squadron 221 (VMF-221). Absolutely fantastic hand drawn art ! Probably my best M1 in my collection so far.

    Here goes nothing! First up is my possible medic m1 helmet. Liner is nicely Id'd to E. Michels with a a full ASN. Research is in progress at Red Bird Research. The liner also has a nice wire sweatband






    (Pic showing name and ASN scratched in)


    Secondly, I also bought a USMC lid. Pretty basic lid-just a standard fixed bale with an earlier CAPAC liner. Liner also has a nice and rare flat locking system green buckle chinstrap! Came with a nice 3rd pattern cover with the correct stitching and no EGA!

    Looks like you have a nice U.S.N. Corpsman Helmet. They used this style in the PTO.

    Thank you for posting.
