    yea i could not find much on these stamps to be honest but its a nice thing you dont see too often on m1 helmets so i like that part about it haha, and about the paint on the chin strap hardware .this helmet does have that so would this make it a Korean war era helmet ? judging from the stamp saying 1953 and the green painted chinstrap parts ? cheers
