I went to a local gun show a few weeks ago and got a pretty good haul for not a lot of money... 

 

WWII USMC helmet & liner with non-slitted cover and no EGA!  Well used but I like it...

And I got all of this for $273!  I got the Ken Burns DVD set for only $8!  It is still $50 on Amazon.

I don't know.  I have heard late-war.  And I have heard so late-war that none ever made it to the PTO.  Hopefully, more knowledgeable people will reply.

Thanks!  I spotted it right away Saturday morning (always looking for Frogskin!) and immediately went to check it out.  His price was too high but I ended up getting it Sunday afternoon right before the show closed.  It got a lot cheaper then.

I will post more pictures of it in the helmet forum when I have time.

No names that I have seen yet.  The liner is quite dirty inside but if it is original, period dirt I really don't want to clean it.
