M1 Helmet McCord World War 2 RS, SB:

An original World War 2 era U.S M1 helmet. Edging is joined at the rear with hinged chinstrap loopes. This is often times referred to by collectors as a Rear Seam, Swivel Bail/Bale. (Depends on who is writing). Based on the welding marks on the rim, this appears to be a McCord. I am guessing the rivets on the chinstraps are some sort of field repair as they measure less than 0.375 inches. This was the maximum surface area authorized for a U.S military field repair. (On paper of course. In the real field environment, soldiers did whatever they needed to reattach the chinstrap). The heat stamp is concealed by paint. The paint appears to be post World War II, however, the cork texturing is still present and visible. This listing is for the shell only. No liner is included.

I will ship within 3 days after payment is received. Please ask any questions before buying as I do not accept returns. Thank you!
