This original mid-WWII U.S. Schlueter manufactured front seam fixed loop M1 helmet shell is in superb condition. The heat stamp of 43A dates the helmet's production to early-1943. It retains its original factory paint, cork texture, and khaki chinstrap. The chinstrap features a flat brass buckle. The helmet's fixed loops are strong and intact. This helmet would pair very nicely with a high pressure helmet liner with non-painted steel A-washers.
