This is an original WWII McCord manufactured M1-C paratrooper helmet. It is a transitional example, with a manganese steel rim meeting at the front. The interestingly-located heat stamp of 1125 dates the helmet's production to November 1944. The helmet retains its original field re-paint, cork texture, and factory-applied OD#7 para straps. The strap featuring the J-hook exhibits an additional line of reinforced stitching. This M1-C helmet shell would pair quite nicely with a Westinghouse paratrooper liner.
