    M1 helmet McCord, flea market pickup

    Gi guys !!

    this one is not rare or anything - but hence its a really nice shape and first hand pickup from a flea market here in Tahoe, I really had the urge to share it ! . Good times of $10 helmets on market are gone.. so I actually had to pay a bill for this one

    Lot is 884F so I guess May of 1944 ? liner has 1945 stamps on sweatband and nape. hope you guys like it, it will be a good match for my fall 1944 made mint Schlueter

        How often do you see one so clean? Yes, it's rare. Well done.

          Agreed, very nice find....What does the 'S' on the leather chinstrap stand for?....Small?...Don't recall ever seeing one stamped in this way before....Bodes

            Hello B. ! I believe S is a manufacturers code, rivet of the chinstrap is UNITED CARR. I remember seeing explanation of these ink stamps in Pieter Oosterman's book (which I dont have ), but I dont exactly remember what manufacturer S stood for

              Seems like a great deal for such a perfect example.

                That’s a very nice, well taken care of helmet! I haven’t seen many that clean. Nice pick up!
