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

€ 1,350.00



Quick Overview

McCord 'fixed bail' M-1 steel shell with type 1 St Clair low pressure liner. The steel shell has its original 11 row weave OD3 chinstraps with cast raised bar brass buckle. The heat stamp is 281A. The St Clair liner features smooth green exterior paint and a green painted interior with a large 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). The liner has rayon suspension with fixed leather chinstrap with square sliding buckle. It is complete with a cotton headband and rayon neckband. The name Doyle is written on the suspension.
This rare type 1 St Cllair liner of this helmet is featured in my M-1 Helmet book (pages 146 and 148-149 of the 2007 Limited Edition and pages 154 and 156-157 of the 2010 Schiffer Edition). The helmet is in very good, 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.

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