    Default 33rd Illinois infantry M1917 helmet

    Here is my WWI 33rd Illinois infantry M1917 helmet. It is in real nice shape, but most of the sand combat finish has worn away to reveal it's original paint, the rough finish only remains in the low areas around the brim. Have been trying to find a uniform to go with it, but not much luck so far.

    My great grandfather was part of the 33rd but he was the 124th artillery division, listening post. (I have his uniform, field gear and helmet not giving those up though) The best place to find uniforms like that would be commercial salesmen who buys and sells these for a living.
