WWII US Navy M-1 Helmet, Squadron Marked-This interesting example has a navy grey finish over the original green finish. The grey finish remains 75% intact. There is a hand drawn mark on the front which we believe to be some sort of a squadron mark. The Schlueter produced helmet has a heat stamp number of 408A. It has swivel bales and a front seam. The chinstrap has moderate wear with a tear and the buckle itself is missing. The liner is an unpainted Westinghouse example. The interior suspension is all OD 3 tan. The "A" washers are painted green. The headband is maker marked and a size large. The brown leather sweatband has some wear and discoloration but is still very soft. The owner wrote his name is bold, black letters, Van Snyder. A great example and quite desirable!
