Jack, sounds like a great helmet and a super hard to find one and most especially one in such a condition. And you're right, these posted collections here are a real asset and a great help to collectors as it gives them an opportunity to see and learn what certain items look like, and how they fit in and were used during the various US military periods.
I know seeing some of these great collections posted here has helped me also, Ray

Win-Lee belt-15 - Copy.JPG I picked up a USN stamped holster for a 1889/92 38 Long Colt revolver to go on the Winchester Lee Navy cartridge belt for display. Not sure if a revolver would also be carried on a rifle belt but it looks good anyway. Ray

Here's a 1903/07 Cavalry cartridge belt that I had for a number of years and I just picked up a scarce Mills 1911 canvas pistol holster to put on it. The Lift the dot fasteners on the holster dates the holster to about 1916-17. The Mills nine (puckered) pocket rimless eagle button belt has a leather sword hanger and a "D" ring riveted on the side. There are Mills patent dates on the brass adjustments with the last date of "07".

Stenciled on the inside of the belt is a number "21 and crossed sabers with the number "313" over the sabers and the letter "E" under them. The 313th Cavalry was formed in Camp Del Rio, Texas in April 1918and later re-organized into the 69th & 70th Field Artillery which became part of the 95th Div. The belt is little soiled otherwise excellent. The Mills holster is in minty condition except the male rivet has pulled loose from the back washer on the holster body. Ray

Well I repaired the lift the dot fastener on the holster.  The holster was priced low at $200 because of the fastener issue but now it is good order, Ray

I think I have reached the end of adding more items to my collection as you see by the photos I have finally run out of room. No more floor or wall space left to display any more items and I don't want to remodel/expand the size of the room. Of course I always say that but then I run into some neat item I have to have. However I will really try to use buying restraint from on, of course unless I see some thing I just have to have. LoL Ray

Ray,

 

Thanks for bringing this back up to the top (where it belongs!), it's great to re-visit an older thread. Good to see an update of your room overall, I'm sure there's just a bit of space in there somewhere!  ;)

 

Thanks for posting,

 

Will

Thanks for the compliments fellows.

I just found 11 stereo SAW period view cards I almost forgot I had. When I get a chance to photograph them I will post them. Gives you a pretty good idea of the period guns and equipment. Here's one to start with I just took a picture of so you get an idea of what they are,  Ray

Amazing display room! You must have every type of rifle and most of the uniform variants, or so it seems!
