Hey all,

Thoughts on the 29th LT marked M1 Helmet with net on Oakleafs' site? I've read back and forth on helmets there due to the beach engineer lid...

In my opinion, the 29th insignia is not original.

The net also has zero age, which leads me to think this has been doctored up. I dont trust much of the American Helmers they have for sale on there

Totally agree with Wake1941 on the rest of the WWII-era American helmets. On the 29th, there looks to be a chip overpaint in the grey portion of the insignia.

Gents, I appreciate your input. Your thoughts are in line with my thoughts skeptical gut feeling. Thank you! Always better to get opinions when in doubt.
