    a very nice salty late war M-1 complete with original chin straps not always easy to come buy as sellers tend to remove them to sell separately did the liner come with it or did you add it ?

    Thanks for you're reply Nick
    That's the reason I didn't show the liner as I did add it to the shell

    still a great catch with or without a liner i do love seeing untouched original M-1's this is becoming a rarity these days with all the fakers out there

    Hi,
    i love them in that condition and as nick says they are getting harder to come by, i only have two of them in my collection one i have had since the sixties and one relic, from Utah beach area. You have a good helmet there they can only go up in price.

    Probably not the right place to post these but I may as well keep my M1s together, here's my remaining WW2 types (I have previously post my two USN M1s)
    The swivel bale was missing the claw strap.

    Cheers Steve,
    To all, I'm really not an expert on the M1 (I've only had two other fixed bales in past)
    The spits on my fixed bale, is that an indication of early mfg? and also I have no reference on how to date a heat stamp
    Regards
