M-1 Helmet

M-1 Helmet

Quick Overview

Schlueter 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with high pressure plastic liner. The steel shell is a rare variation with its original 11 row weave OD7 chinstraps (not khaki OD3). It has a flat black coated brass buckle. The heat stamp seems to be 164 A with the S. The liner has no maker's mark, only a 5. It features green coated A washers and is complete with its original headband, neckband and leather chinstrap with green coated buckle. The leather chinstrap is a bit dry with some cracks. It is marked with an S. This helmet is featured in my M-1 Helmet book (pages 26 and 27 of the Limited Edition of 2007). It is in very good condition and would be a top piece in any collection. Fixed bail steel shells with OD7 shade chinstraps are very hard to find. They are missing from most collections.

This is a helmet from the M-1Helmet.com collection.
