USN Talkers Helmet WW2

Article about: Great helmets guys. As I've never handled one of these, is the padding removable? Doesn't seem to be... And what is it made of? I have an M1 with a similar chinstrap to the one used on these

    Default USN Talkers Helmet WW2

    G'day All

    I was just going through my photo archives and figured I'd show this one.
    One of my favorites to whack on my head

    All of these I've seen have repro straps and chincups in them.
    Did you refurb this one.........?

    I did have to replace the chin strap with what I believe is a genuine one

    Oops - Lol, I meant 'NOS' - 'New Old Stock' ones.........!

    I almost bought one for $75 at my local militaria dealer before he retired.
    It was on consignment and did not have the straps/cup in it. I thought
    about it for a few days - then the owner came by and put NOS
    straps and chincup in. The price went up to $250.........!

    Whoa really!!! I did struggle to find the the chin cup, but it was cheap $20 from a gun dealer in the US via Auction arms Gun Auctions & Guns For Sale at GunAuction.com 8 years ago
    The helmet cost a whopping $30 and there where 2 at the time (should have bought the second) at an old second hand shop in the hills down here.
