Hi Folks, I recently picked up this m1 at auction. I was really after the sweatband that was in it. (not the one in the photo) It was an early khaki type in a Korean era liner. So the liner is the capac type with a Westinghouse stamp. Under the thin layer of blue paint i can see a laundry number and also "in 8-20-53 out 2-20-_ _". The helmet is a front seam swivel bail 989A. So i got the sweatband...but id like to do something with the rest of the helmet. Before i do anything i wanted to make sure its not something that should be left alone or a candidate for restoration.Has anyone ever seen a helmet painted in this blinding blue? Its to dark for UN. The helmet is smooth. The helmets in great shape so I was thinking id like to restore it for a display helmet . chime in !!
