Urgent Identity Help Needed(moved)

Article about: This one's got a good grip on it so whoever it belonged to must have glued it or something to keep it from slipping. (I guess???) Is that a pretty common occurrence for these things?

    Default Urgent Identity Help Needed(moved)

    My M-1 top is a swivel bale rear seam model complete with CAPAC. It has MDS on the shell which means it has been used for something at least, whether combat or not. Another thing missing is the chinstrap. My problem is I'm trying to sell it and I want to be sure of its authenticity, maker, and value. Any help ASAP will be greatly appreciated.

    To me it looks very new, looks like the type of helmet they used in the Dutch army up untill the '90's.

    Is there anyway I can get in under the liner to check for markings without damaging it?

    Your gonna have to push the cloth part of the liner to side if you wanna find the marks in it

    It has markings for CAPAC and Westinghouse, with a 5 and 1 on either side of the CAPAC cross and a 33 over the Westinghouse mark.
    The research I've done leads me to believe it's a 51 model swivel bale with the rear seam. But how could I tell for sure that it's authentic, and what would be the value of one of these in the condition it's in?

    the liner is 1950's era the shell maybe either late WW2 or Vietnam era cant really tell from the small pictures if its a US made shell it should have whats called heat stamp numbers on the inside of the shell normally found near the inside of the front peak area.

    How do I pull the liner out to check? I've tried and tried and for the life of me I can't get it to budge.

    the liner should just pull out as they were never held in place by anything they just slip in & out ????

    If you mean by taking out the cloth part that cant be done unless you have some sort of tool, if wanna take it out of the shell try pulling from the center part of the cloth area gently
