This is an original medic painted WWII helmet set. The wartime painted markings have been authenticated with the assistance of advanced digital microscopy, revealing authentic micro cracking in the paint. The McCord manufactured front seam swivel loop helmet shell's heat stamp of 881H dates its production to May 1944. It appears as though it's had another helmet stacked on top of it, due to the scratches around the side panels where the top helmet's chinstrap loops were rubbing against the painted markings. In addition to the shell's original medic markings, it retains its original factory paint, cork texture, & khaki chinstraps. The straps exhibit steel hardware. The shell has recently been outfitted with an original Westinghouse manufactured liner. It features green painted steel A-washers and folded ends on the neck support, dating its production to mid-1943. The liner comes complete with an original headband, neckband, & green-buckled, United Carr stamped leather liner strap.
