    Default US Helmet

    Howdy guys. I've had this helmet for a long time, it was in my grandparent's basement. The name inside is a cousin's and the liner was added way back when by my Dad. I know a bit about German helmets and other items but nothing about these, any info appreciated!

    Agree Rene...saw this response earlier today. That helmet hung in the cellar for decades, I saw it as a kid, and no one in my family would changed anything. I inherited the helmet some years back.
