Another stunning M1, You really don't see them in this kind of condition too often. You must have some impressive collection of fine M1's from different period's Jake. Always love it when you share them with us! Leon, I really like your example as well. Regardless of whether the art is original, It looks like someone has spent sometime on it and its very striking! Really impressive! I really like the Korean/Nam era lids with the same early pattern WW2 liners. Cheers, Sean.
Was it common for the soldiers to remove the nape strap? I see that yours has it but most of the ones I've seen don't.
Many seem to have the Nape missing as most found them more of a nuisance than anything,but I like mine displayed complete like they were originally intented to be.............
First thing we used to do was pull the neck Nap out or some would referred to it as Parade Nap as it keeps the helmet straight they are a pain in the rear in the field especially at night trying to get your helmet on right. Just my experience. timothy
