M-1 Helmet with net and Capac liner

Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with Capac liner. It has a two tone woven Canadian made helmet net with strips of camouflage which is original to the helmet. The steel shell has its original 11 row weave OD3 chinstraps with brass raised bar buckle. The heat stamp is hard to read but seems to be 215D. Also there is a name written in the steel shell but it is faint. The Capac liner features cotton suspension with steel A washers and is complete with its cotton headband, neckband and leather chinstrap with early type green coated flat lever steel buckle. To find a helmet with its original net is extremely rare, especially with the two tone woven Canadian net. The net has some holes due to age but is overall in good shape. This helmet is featured in my M-1 Helmet book (pages 240-241 of the 2007 Limited Edition and pages 256-257 of the 2010 Schiffer Edition). This helmet is 100% original. 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.
