This is an original early-WWII U.S. McCord manufactured front seam fixed loop M1 helmet shell. The heat stamp of 301C dates the helmet's production to October 1942. It retains its original factory paint, cork texture, and brass buckled khaki chinstrap. The helmet's fixed loops are strong and intact. There are stress cracks throughout.
