M-1 Fixed Bale Helmet - MSA Liner
An Original WW2 US M-1 Fixed Bale Helmet with a MSA Liner.
The McCord fixed bale shell is numbered 665C, the paintwork and cork are in good original condition but does have a few marks and knocks. Both chin straps are present and feature a raised bar nickel buckle.
The liner is made by MSA, the cotton suspension is held to the liner with green painted A washers. The leather sweatband and the cotton nape strap are present, interestingly the sweatband has been hooked and attached to the nape strap i assume to make it more comfortable to wear. The paint on the liner shell is in very good condition.
A great looking M-1 helmet...
