This is an original early-WWII U.S. McCord manufactured front seam fixed loop M1 helmet shell. The heat stamp of 108C dates the helmet's production to March 1942. It retains its original olive drab factory paint, cork texture, and brass-buckled khaki chinstrap. The chinstrap as well as the interior brim are stamped with the laundry number F-2848. The helmet's early style fixed loops are strong and intact.
