M-1 Helmet with type 1 Hawley liner

Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with type 1 Hawley liner. The steel shell has its original 11 row weave OD3 chinstraps with raised bar brass buckle. The heat stamp is 259C. The Hawley fibre liner is a type 1 that features rayon suspension, rectangular aluminum washers and fixed leather chinstrap with brass square slide buckle and brass chinstrap holders. The use of aluminum and brass parts indicate earliest prodiction, late 1941 - early 1942. The headband and neckband are of rayon also. The helmet appears not to have been worn and is surely one of the nicest of this type. It is all complete, 100% original and in superb condition, a true gem. This top piece has been in my collection for a long time but its time for a new home. View the many photos.
