    There are some nice m1's on this thread, here is mine, a standard Mccord, fixed bales, front seam, heat stamp 368A. It is my first complete and original WW2 M1 helmet purchased to complete my WW2 US infantry display.

    Cheers
    Harry

    Yes I do need some rehab but im in for the long haul Mark,I was so overwhelmed by the sheer quality and character of those lids,im really interested in the Airborne Helmet shown.
    That one is an M1C from the late 50's or early 60's that would have been used at the American Jump School in Wiesbaden, Germany by airborne elements of the 8th Infantry Division. The 101 is a part of the design, meant to represent the rigging of a parachute, but I also believe it could have been a stylistic choice by a former member of the 101st.

    Here are some more pics showing the rigger liner, which is painted black to match the shell, and the rest of the helmet:

    nice finds, i like the repro USMC cover, it looks like it fits like a glove on the shell, I used water on mine to make it conform to the shape better.
