    Default Unissued M1 Helmet & Liner

    I thought I'd share a few photos from my helmet collection of a unissued late war Schlueter manufactured M1 helmet and Capac liner. I included a close up of the manufactuers mark and heat lot stamp on the steel body. Also included a close up of the cork texture to give you an idea of what the cork looked like on a helmet before it became worn down with use. This liner has never had a headband or nape strap installed on it. Pictured with the liner are the unissued headband and nape strap.

    About 3 years ago there was a treasure trove of these M-1's found in the U.S. still in crates. I don't know who bought them all but, they were flooding the market at that time. these have now dried up as collectors jumped on these very rare helmets like ants to a picnic. Your very fortunate to have one and a Schlueter at that!

    the texture in the paint is made from cork & is sprayed on in the factory this was to help stop glare from the paint.
