  • Description: This is a front seam "Steel Pot" with swiveling chinstrap bails. The helmet retains about 70-75% of the original olive drab, flocked paint finish with flaking along the rim, and some shallow dents on the crown. The stainless steel rim is bright where the paint has flaked, and has lifted in a few spots. The olive green painted, fiber-resin liner is in fair-near good overall condition with a broken rear strap and intact suspension web with remnants of the leather comfort band remaining. Handwritten owner label is present on the right inside: "ROBERT M PARENT / 148341696". No chinstrap is present, and the exterior of the liner exhibits areas of wear to the underlying fiber resin. This is a great looking wartime M1 helmet, and is in about good condition overall.
