This WWII M1 Helmet is overall in Excellent condition. Call me if interested.
I believe this two piece helmet is comprised of an Original WWII Era Front Seam Swivel Bale McCord M1 with a Westinghouse/Capac Liner, unit marked 36th Texas Division "T-Patches" on one side and 141st Infantry Regiment (Remember the Alamo) aka "The Lost Battalion" on the other. The inside of the liner is complete with OD#7 HBT webbing, nape strap, leather chinstrap and sweatband.
The heat stamp inside the steel pot is hard to read, but I believe it is stamped 228B. The pot itself is in excellent condition, no stress cracks or major dents, no rust and some corking throughout. The paint is also in great condition with minor chipping along the seam and a few minor scrapes and scratches. It's possible it may have a war-time repaint, but I'm not positive. The high pressure Liner is double stamped by Westinghouse and by Capac. The HBT webbing is OD#7, in good condition and has the green painted A-frame washers. The adjustable Nape strap and Sweatband bear manufacturer stamps that I cannot make out. The nape strap is missing the back part of one snap and has a small tear above another (see picture) which in turn caused the webbing to pull away from the snap. The leather Chinstrap has the United Carr rivet and green painted clasp, however, the strap snapped in two during its photo shoot. The leather Sweatband bears the initials R.F.G. and possibly the name "Ramirez". I inherited this from my Grandfathers estate and while going thru his things in the attic we found this M1 helmet along side a WWI M1917 helmet. I know my Grandfather was in the Navy during WWII but I'm not certain how he acquired this helmet. I believe it may have belonged to a fellow veteran & friend of his from their hometown of San Antonio, TX. This M1 has a lot of epic history behind it (Salerno & The Rapido), great for stories & research & will be a fantastic addition to any collection. Overall, this M1 is in Excellent condition and buyer will be 100% satisfied.
