A WWII US replica M2 D-bail Paratrooper Helmet hand painted and aged to reflect a museum quality battlefield relic.
This helmet represents the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, famous for so many WW2 campaigns, most notably the D-Day invasion of France at Normandy on June 6, 1944. The 506th PIR was also featured in HBOs "Band ofBrothers" series.
The M-1 liner is a rare replica Hawley first pattern fiber liner created by Dropzone Helmet Restorations (as is the M2 helmet).This unique item includes liner webbing, sweatband and nape strap, leather chin cup, and "aged" A-yokes.
Also included in the set, a reproduction of a Model 1911.45 calibre WW2 US Military sidearm, also artfully painted to replicate the correct "aging" of the piece. The reproduction/model pistol is non-firing, and cannot be configured to fire. It is otherwise mechanically inoperable, but sports a removable magazine.
Also included is a very rareORIGINALvintage M-7 leather shoulder holster for the replica/model 1911 sidearm. The WW2 holster has "U.S. BOYT 43" stamped into the leather on the back side. It is the Real McCoy!This offering also comes with a period set of dog tags from a WW2 veteran, and his "good luck" cross.The OD green painted wooden display stand comes with the set.Whether you're honoring the "Greatest Generation" for their service or just adding to your WW2 memorabilia collection, I think you'll find this a quality addition.
Hopefully you'll enjoy these items as much as I have.
