Late-WWII Swivel Loop Schlueter M1 Helmet Shell (1944)
This original WWII U.S. Schlueter manufactured swivel loop M1 helmet shell is in excellent condition. Stenciled on the front of the helmet in red paint is a "20", likely denoting use by either the U.S.N. or the U.S.M.C. The heat stamp of 427A dates the helmet's production to late-1944. It retains its original factory paint, cork texture, and OD#7 (green) chinstrap. This helmet would pair very nicely with a high pressure helmet liner with blackened brass A-washers.
