    Here are a couple more of our USN lids!



    A pair of rear seam Schlueter helmets with very close heat stamps. These may actually not be USN lids, it is just an assumption on our part until we learn otherwise. The meaning of the AB-13 markings still remains a mystery!

    This is no doubt a Navy issed M1 but I can not say that it was used by the US Navy. It too is a rear seam Schlueter and still has the original sean on chin strap although the salt air has severely corroded it's metal parts. Again, we have no idea what the markings indicate. Any suggestions?

    Here is one I had made up for a buddy of mine. NOT authentic but rather made to resemble one worn by his grandfather in a photo while serving in the Pacific.

    It looks like 50A but an 8 is on the right of that which seems weird to me
