WWII Fixed Loop McCord M1 Helmet Shell W/ NCO Leadership Bar (November 1943)

WWII Fixed Loop McCord M1 Helmet Shell W/ NCO Leadership Bar (November 1943)

This is an original mid-WWII U.S. McCord manufactured front seam M1 helmet shell. The heat stamp of 781A is exceptionally high for a fixed loop, establishing this as one of the last helmets produced prior to the switch to swivel loops in November 1943. It retains its original olive drab factory paint finish, cork texture, and khaki chinstrap. The chinstrap exhibits steel hardware. The rear of the helmet showcases an original NCO leadership stripe, while the front of the helmet appears to have had some black paint spilt on it. This helmet would pair quite nicely with a high pressure helmet liner with green-painted steel A-washers.
