This M1 helmet is made by McCord Radiator in 1943, before the order to switch the design from fixed loops to swivels. The paint and cork finish is original and has a very attractive hardened patina.
The helmet has been restored to look and feel like it might have seen service with the U.S. Marines on one of the many island campaigns of the PTO. The helmet has been fit with the proper WWII pattern cover, the version with foliage button holes. The chinstrap has correct stamped brass hardware. The liner was made by Westinghouse. It has been rebuild with new suspension and uncoated steel A washers, as is typical of mid war liners. The paint on the liner is original.
The helmet has been distressed to look and feel original, and would be great for any WWII Pacific display.
