The first of two Helmets purchased from a 25 year collection that was broken up and sold off by the owner,I felt they needed to have a good home.
This was shown in "my ww2 m1 collection to date" but I felt it should have a thread of its own.
Early McCord with heat lot 198A with dimple on rim.
Raised Brass Buckle and milled J hook.
Rayon transitional westinghouse liner.with steel unpainted triangle A washers.
Rayon sweatband with slight mothing but nothing too serious.
