This is a US World War II M1 helmet and liner. The shell was manufactured by the McCord Radiator company, the liner was made by Firestone. The heat stamp is not visible, but the fixed bales puts this one being manufactured somewhere at the beginning of production in 1941 and November of 1943. The helmet has a dark appearance, with areas of spot painting covering the original paint. The original cork texturing remains on the lower sections of the helmet. The helmet shell is practically dent free, with just a couple of very small ones on the top. There are no stress cracks in the shell either. The stainless steel band around the rim retains the majority of the paint. The rim has a front seam stainless steel band. The chin strap bails are fixed. The chin straps are both missing. The shell does not have a net on it. The Firestone liner is from late 1943 to the end of 1944. The Firestone stamp is clearly visible in the inside top of the liner, along with the letter D and number 25. The liner shows only the original coat of paint on the exterior, retaining about 95%. The liner is intact and shows minimal wear and no damage. The suspension cloth is cotton and khaki in color. It is retained to the liner by green painted steel A washers. The sweatband is complete but is a post war replacement. The entire suspension system shows minimal use. The cotton suspension straps show light soiling. The garters for the liner chin strap are both present. The liner chin strap is missing. This liner never had A yokes installed, as it was not intended for airborne use. This is an excellent example of an M1 combat helmet from WWII. No matter what branch, every World War II serviceman wore one of these. It will compliment any collection.
