Hello, gentlemen. I acquired this lid this week, saving it from the trash pile. The liner dates 1953. I do know much about U.S. Army helmets, especially from the Korean War era, so your input would be most appreciated and applauded. This lid, I must say, is in pretty decent shape. Sadly, I cannot read anything written on the shell anymore but the liner chin strap has 1953 on it (the photos make it look like 1963 but holding the lid I swear it says 1953). Apparently, it has been sitting in a house in Florida for decades (I work DoD here in Germany and a husband of a lady I work with passed away and she has been giving me his military items from their homes in Germany and Florida. It's mostly Vietnam/1980's uniforms and items but a few really interesting things have popped up).
Anyway, it is a bright day in Germany today so I hope the photos are tolerable. Thanks and cheers for any and all information. Prost!
