WWII Fixed Loop McCord M1 Helmet Shell (September 1942)

WWII Fixed Loop McCord M1 Helmet Shell (September 1942)

This original WWII U.S. McCord manufactured fixed loop M1 helmet shell is in great, field-used condition. The heat stamp of 29_B dates the helmet's production to September 1942. It retains its original factory paint, cork texture, and khaki chinstrap. The chinstrap features a brass buckle in the "raised bar" variety. The helmet's fixed loops are strong and intact. There is a stress crack at the rear and minor surface rust throughout. Interestingly, the top of the helmet is inscribed with the hand-painted rack number of '195', indicating that this helmet was likely used by the Navy or the Marine Corps. This helmet would pair very nicely with a high pressure helmet liner with non-painted steel A-washers.
