This original WWII U.S. Schlueter manufactured swivel loop M1 helmet shell is in excellent condition. The transitional manganese rim, front seam, and heat stamp of 343A date the helmet's production to October 1944. It retains its original factory paint, cork texture, and OD#7 (green) chinstrap. The top of the helmet has a moderately-sized indentation, however the helmet's ability to accept a liner is not impacted. This helmet would pair very nicely with a high pressure helmet liner with blackened brass A-washers.
