WWII Fixed Loop McCord M1 Helmet Shell (September 1943) (Blemished)
This is an original mid-WWII U.S. McCord manufactured front seam fixed loop M1 helmet shell. The heat stamp of 629B dates the helmet's production to September 1943. It retains its original olive drab factory paint finish, cork texture, and khaki chinstrap. The steel-buckled chinstrap is quite frayed at the wearer's left loop and the helmet exhibits light surface rust throughout. The aforementioned flaws have resulted in a 50% price reduction. This would be an ideal match for a liner with green painted steel A-washers.
