    Default usmc ww2 helmet and cover.

    ive just bought this helmet. the shell, mcord heat stamp 914. liner IMP. all helmet and liner parts are there.
    the cover 1st pattern with slits cut in for bales or loops and straps. the stiching seems all ok to me. all in all helmet and cover seems to be in very good condition. i would just like to ask if anyone might have somthing to add on condition of this helmet and cover. and that it was a good buy. thanks mark.

    stitching is correct, triangle on the beach side and straight on the jungle using a khaki thread. That's a very nice piece, mine is stained horribly.

    thanks fallschirmjager. i never realy gave us m1 a look but started to like them there getting hard to find good one at my end. but i like them a lot i think ill be happy with what ive got for now. the ww2 usmc m1 helmet and cover always was the one i wanted been reading and looking for a long time. then seen this one i could not let it go. just dont see these helmets over here. so im very happy with it. i found that the us m1 is just as hard to find unmessd with ones just like german helmets. and there going up in price too.

    yea the stiching and camo pattern is the most important thing to look at with these covers ive had a fake one for a while now and you can see how different they are. just that this one for me hasent got that well used look but im very happy with it.
