    Thanks for all the replies! Its amazing what details you guys can spot on these old helmets. Very impressive.

    To give you an update, I got the helmet. The pot itself seems pretty standard. Front seam, swivel bale.

    Just wanted to see if you guys could ID some other markings.

    Pic 1 - Whats with the missing paint? markings of painted rank worn away? big ol scratch?

    Pic 2 - I couldnt find this manufacters marking anywhere. It either reads "CMC 61" or "GMC 61"

    Pic 3 - 2 different colours of olive drab webbing??

    the mark to the front looks just to be a big chuck of paint scratched off, cant tell you anything about the makers mark in the liner i haven't got round to researching post war liners yet but i can tell you is the liner sweatband is off WW2 production

    50$ for that, excellent buy although Nick is right, liner is korean war era and helmet is a reissue from ww2.
