    Many thanks James for looking,Rayon is my weakness,and my sights next year will be to get a Hawley or St Clair or Hood Liner.also to note both liners have the earlier dark smooth green paint.

    Jeez Jake I think you better grab mine as well
    I add three M-1's to my collection in 2014 but this McCord is my favorite
    It is a fixed bail front seam these were only produced from 1941-1943 The heat stamp 364-A would make the production date approximately November, December 1942 it is sporting the earlier shortened OD # 3 chinstrap that is not quite long enough to fit around the rear rim of the shell and a nice early raised brass buckle there are three small stress cracks which have not broken through and are only evident on the rear exterior of the shell
    Since the shell came with out a proper WW II vintage liner I opted to purchase a nice minty War time issued CAPAC that is near a perfect match for size and condition .
    It is sporting mid war green head band with blackened steel A washers the leather chinstrap is a late war variant with black painted hardware and is so marked United Carr on the buckle although this was a marriage of components it still displays rather well and makes a nice representative piece to put on my shelf.

    Regards Mark

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

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

    B24AT6 I have to ask about the swivel bail D-ring in image nine a rather interesting looking M-1 was it rigger or Depo modified to serve as a para helmet ?

    I believe so, there was a test done using the rings from mess kits to create a helmet to replace the M2, eventually leading to the M1C. Another example can be seen in De Trez's paratrooper helmet book, with a period photo.

    Wowzers is all i can say with an incredible assortment of wonderful Helmets like that.living here in the UK i guess it was always going to be difficult at best to find examples like the ones you've shown here,after seeing these im debating whether its really worth the pain and agony of finding what i would call the box standard basic,guess time to think in 2015.well done to you and good luck on your future m1 hunting..............
