Article about: By new, I think Russ means that the net could have been unissued and never saw the light of day outside of a supply crate until very recently. Chances are your helmet started life as an orig

    I was holding the helmet up to the window to make it easier to see so that's why there's some glare

    well all i can say is if you have any chance of getting your money back on this one i would advise you do so as its not an original WW2 M-1 helmet as already stated the the shell chin strap is fake the shell looks to have a post war repaint maybe 1950's Korean war finish being a CAPAC liner it is US but without pictures i cant say whether its WW2 or not but its been messed with way to much to be in anyway original !!!

    New net, new chin strap, nrw paint and it doesn't look like the liner matches up to well........ someone dolled this up to pawn off as an original WWII lid it looks like.

    The net is not new, It was one of a kind where i bought.nthey did havev any in stock it was just a one deal item, it also smells really bad, it was just one that survived the war in really good shape and I replaced the chin straps because when I got the helmet one was missing & half of the other one was there (they were sewn on) and yes the paint was refirbished because the original paint was really bad. I'm pretty sure the shell was ww2, I mean they made 22 million in ww2 and produced another million postwar, so whats the chance of it not being a ww2 helmet?? Does anyone know how many rearseam were produced in ww2 (estimate) ?

    Is the characture and "M" or an "I" ?

    Yes, 22 million made but just as likely not to be a WWII period helmet as it is. Tons of helmets want to scrap and as many were sold off to other countries.

    Need good profile photo with no net and shell removed. Also inside of liner would be really nice.
