    Just looking for some information or thoughts on some M1 helmets. Photo Heavy

    The first is a front seam swivel Bale, Schlueter (271A S) shell with a Seaman Paper liner
    fairly certain it is WW2 from all the appropriate markings ect, but ive always wondered about the 7 markings and white liner.

    The Second is another of mine I received from a Paintball community, Im sure it was used post war but have never identified the maker or the reason for the OOW

    The last has recently come up for sale in my area. its a front seam. The thing I am most curious about is the "Chaplains Cross". It seems too large, off Center and tilted.

    The white looks like it was painted up for some kind of racing club. The liner and helmet are WW2 and the liner looks complete. The OOW possibly stands for officer of the watch. Would like to see better pictures of the cross on the helmet.

    The white paint should come off if you decide to remove it.

    Chaplain helmets are a mine field, don’t buy it without better pictures. If the seller is not willing to send more pictures that’s not a good sign.
