    right nick ive had a better look with a headtorch on and now can clearly see this M -172A would this mean a postwar mccord heatstamp change making it 1960's production regards james

    with that number i would say 1950's KW era shell as that's a very similar heat stamp number set up as my KW era M-1.

    Thanks James for the link,as this was before my time here,Nick was correct the McCord shell is from the 1951 production run,and has North & Judd Anchor chinstraps 1965-67 and the M1 COMBAT LINER was produced by Marmac industries,nice complete M1C with a good honest look to it,keep hold as these are getting harder to find with correct componants..........
    With Regards Jake.

    Hi James, 2011-2014 that quite a gap in posting and updating mate!, I really like the look of this one, and is very similar to one of my M1- C helmets, looking at the rank that has been removed from the front of the shell I would say captain, good point I have not seen any recent post's here from Nick, I know back in the year he sold off a lot of his M1's on ebay!!
