This M-1 helmet belongs to a friend and he ask me to post it here to have some opinions about it. And He has the questions bellow:
- Is it a genuine WWII U.S. Navy helmet?
- The "LANGLEY" name at liner was period painted and means this helmet was used at CV-01 USS Langley or another WWII unit with the same name?
- Liner neck strap is marked as below, one idea what it means?
S.M.C. SIZE 5
