M-1 Helmet with type 1 fibre liner

M-1 Helmet with type 1 fibre liner

Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with Hawley fibre liner. The steel shell has its original 11 row weave OD3 chinstraps with raised bar brass buckle. The heat stamp is 85E. The Hawley fibre liner features rayon suspension with steel rectangular washers and fixed leather chinstrap with square sliding buckle. It is complete with a rayon headband and neckband. The name Cole is written on the suspension and on the long chinstrap of the steel shell. This fibre liner of this helmet is featured in my M-1 Helmet book (page 42 of the 2007 Limited Edition and page 46 of the 2010 Schiffer Edition).
Early production helmets with fibre liners in good shape are becoming exceedingly hard to find. The helmet is in very good, all complete and 100% original condition and will make a great addition to a collection. Plus it is presented in a book! 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.
