    Default ID Help please on a number of M1 type helmets.

    Dear All,

    I had a number of helmets come in over the weekend, and there was these M1 style helmets. I do not know much about American helmets, and I was hoping that somebody could help ID these, without me having to strip them down. The helmets I had come in were all in their original condition. I think the last one might be Austrian. Not so sure.

    Kindest Regards

    Paul

    First one looks like German budeswehr, second one ww2 liner and looks to be ww2 head band with Vietnam era shell, or at least the chin strap is, last one ww2 liner again, but with Vietnam era headband with 1980s chin strap.

    Hi Paul, great looking pairing, as before the first model is a West German M85-M1A1, I would be interested in seeing more detailed photo's of the second model which appears to a US M1, therefore are there any stamps in the inner liner crown ?
