    Default USMC M1 For Review!

    I recently had the honor of meeting someone I consider an authority on U.S. military helmets from World War II is to modern times. Beyond that, he is local and and has always been able to answer newbie questions I threw at him via call or text...

    He has decided to get out of the hobby and has gone ahead and posted his collection for sale on ebay and craigslist. He did me the great favor of alerting me and inviting me over to check out his collection and have first pick of the litter...

    This evening I made the trip to his place and I came home with an M1 with USMC reversible camouflage cover, and a M1 with camouflage netting.

    Here is his man cave:

    The EGA is a post-war stamp, still a nice helmet!

    I believe it to be a war-time liner that was reissued post-war with the stamp added, correct?

    Yep! The cover might actually be 1950's manufacture. Somewhere on one of the flaps there should be a date.

    Mine's a lot like yours: USMC Fixed-Bale M1

    I thought so! I checked for a date, but no luck. I am extremely happy with it and got it "for a song!"
