Iíve read about but not seen an example of an all yellow M-1 shell, from any service or period. Does anyone have an example or photo?
Iíve come across a front seam sb McCord, that has been repainted a time or two, one of which appears to be solid yellow. I know that some time in the in the 1970ís the navy switched to a yellow primer but Iím pretty sure that this is not what is showing on this shell as I have an example of a USN helmet that has a little primer showing and looks to be a very different shade and tone of yellow.
Iíve started stripping the top couple layers of OD paint off, to expose the yellow, in hopes of finding some kind of markings, as you would expect to see on a navy painted helmet, but nothing so far, just ugly yellow paint.
