    Again mark another very nice example of the m1c the denny net and scrim look superb and the owners name hidden away is such a nice find ,ill be honest and say im really fond of these ww2 shells seeing use post war ,im putting my neck on the line and guessing your shell is manufactured by the McCord radiator company ,i think most collectors of nam period m1 shells have issues over the low dome profile shells and what seemingly can be unpleasing to the eye liner fitment ,i know this is irrelevant to the thread but i just wanted to mention this helmet from my modest m1 collection , the liner is for ground troops and dated 1983 so very close to being the last production run of the steel pots in this configuration ,what was really interesting for me to find was the shell which is also a ww2 period reissue and made by none other than schlueterClick image for larger version.

    Hi James many Thanx and yes you are correct if I am reading the steel lot right this particular M-1 was indeed produced by McCord in late 1944.
    And I could not agree with you more the low dome on the later produced M-1 makes for a terrible fit with the para liners which for some reason all seem to be a higher profile.

    Thanks for confirmation on your McCord m1 shell mark with regards the later m1's it does beg the question why suitable liners were not manufactured to accomodate the lower profile ,ill look forward to seeing what other goodies you bring to this interesting thread mark regards james

    As to the net James IMO it is a piece of vehicle and or mobile artillery camo netting and not a Denny you can tell by the sewn piece of webbing on the one image that shows the back of the helmet body.

    Another Vietnam era US M-1 C to add to the thread there is a lot going on with this example such as it would appear to be a depot retro-fitted and re-baled McCord FS FB if I am reading the heat stamp (215 B ) correctly but I will cover that in a thread on its own this particular helm has a nice used look about it and shows the expected patina stain and wear to the interior furniture and the helmet body one would expect to see on a period used lid.

    Thanks James I am really pleased with this one it displays really well I still need a KW era M-1 C, M-2 ( D Bale ) and a mid to late war example of a M-1 C with the khaki #3 yokes and unpainted A washers to round my collection of US off but there are just so many others out there as well .

    Default 511th PIR Helmet / Liner

    Shes not pretty but I got this as a thank you for my grandfather being my first salute when I commissioned. It is a Rigger style helmet that belonged to the 511th PIR. My grandfather was a member of the 511th during the Korean War era. When I gave it to him, his eyes teared up as he held it in his hands. He looked up at me and I could see all of the memories of a young soldier in his eyes.
