    Default U.S. WW2 M-1917A1 Helmet. Opinions?

    I picked this helmet up at a consignment shop for cheap. I hope it ends up being good and that acquiring it will make my bad day a little better.

    What do you all think? Can anyone identify any of the stampings or marks on the liner?

    Any tips on what to do with the mildew on the liner? The leather is actually in very good shape and supple.

    Some guy posted an answer some time ago about a product he used on old Jaguar cars. Maybe he will chime in.

    That looks good.I'd love to find one of these.I cant help with the markings i'm afraid.
    As for the mildew, give it a wipe with a damp sponge or cloth and let it dry.Looks like it just got damp at one time.

    Hi Giz,
    You picked up a nice helmet there, i like the paintwork plenty left on it as said give the mildew a wipe over it should be ok after that. Well done wish i could find one over here in that condition.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

    I looked up "Chorazy" and four matches popped up... However, none seem to match. Maybe the original order of this helmet was in the Navy?

    Please Wait...
