This is an original Military Police painted WWII helmet set. The wartime painted markings have been authenticated with the assistance of advanced digital microscopy. The previously undetectable micro cracking, which most forgers have yet to correctly replicate, is readily apparent under magnification. The McCord manufactured front seam fixed loop helmet shell's heat stamp of 261B dates its production to August 1942. It retains its original textured field repaint and khaki chinstraps. The straps exhibit early brass hardware. The Westinghouse manufactured helmet liner features blackened brass A-washers, dating its production from mid-1944 to 1945. The liner comes complete with its original headband, neckband, and green-buckled leather liner strap.
