M-1 Helmet with type 1 St Clair liner, x marked

Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with St Clair low pressure liner. The steel shell has its original 11 row weave OD3 chinstraps with brass raised bar buckle. The heat stamp is a little hard to read but seems to be 19C. The St Clair liner is a type 1 and features smooth green exterior paint and a green painted interior with a small yellow x stamp in the dome. This rare X stamp indicates earliest production and was done before the SC stamp (this particular x stamp is presented in my M-1 Helmet book pages 154 of the 2010 Schiffer Edition, see last photo). The liner has rayon suspension with fixed leather chinstrap with square sliding buckle. It is complete with a cotton headband and rayon neckband.
This helmet is in excellent, all complete and 100% original condition and will make a great addition to a collection. It has been in my collection for a long time but its time for a new home. View the many photos.

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