WWII Fixed Loop M1 Helmet & Westinghouse Liner Medic Set (1942-43)
This early-WWII helmet set showcases four original medic's crosses, constructed of medical tape. The McCord manufactured helmet shell's heat stamp is quite faint, however given the helmet's overall configuration it can be dated from mid-1942 to mid-1943. In addition to its medic crosses, it retains its original cork texture and khaki chinstraps. The chinstraps feature brass hardware. The helmet's early-WWII Westinghouse manufactured helmet liner has non-painted steel A-washers and folded ends on the neck support, dating the liner's production to late-1942. Its interior brim is marked with the original veteran's laundry number, P-1701. The khaki suspension is strong and intact. It comes complete with its original green-buckled leather liner strap, Johnson & Johnson neckband, and a recently installed Scholl Manufacturing Co. headband. Like the helmet itself, all of the accessories date to 1942.
