Mid-WWII Swivel Loop M1 Helmet & MSA Liner (1944 Set)
This original U.S. WWII helmet set is in good, field-used condition. The McCord manufactured front seam swivel loop helmet shell's heat stamp of 20_C dates its production to June 1942, which indicates that this helmet likely left the factory with fixed loops before undergoing a depot refurbishment. Inscribed in the helmet's interior is the surname of its original owner "Howell." It retains its original field repaint, cork texture, and OD#7 chinstraps. The straps exhibit steel hardware. The MSA manufactured helmet liner features blackened brass A-washers, dating its production from mid-1944 to 1945. The liner comes complete with an original headband, neckband, and blackened brass buckled leather liner strap. The liner's exterior showcases its original olive drab paint.
