Mid-WWII Fixed Loop M1 Helmet & Inland/Firestone Liner (1943 Set)

Mid-WWII Fixed Loop M1 Helmet & Inland/Firestone Liner (1943 Set)

This is an original mid-WWII M1 helmet set. Nearly every component is stamped with its original owner's laundry number, "W-2946", showcasing its lengthy history together as a set. The McCord manufactured front seam fixed loop helmet shell has a heat stamp of 698D, dating its production to November 1943. The helmet retains its original olive drab factory finish, cork texture, and, somewhat uncommon, steel-buckled khaki chinstraps. The Inland/Firestone manufactured liner's original olive drab factory paint finish is in excellent condition. It features green-painted steel A-washers and a khaki suspension, which date the liner's production from mid-1943 to mid-1944. The khaki suspension is strong and intact. It comes complete with its original headband, neckband, and flat-buckled leather liner strap, with United Carr rivets.
