Very nice and similar to the one in the book. I'd have to ask the owner of that helmet where he obtained his since I don't remember it anymore, but if I am not mistaken he found it in a DRGM among a pile of various other M1's.
This came out of the John Coy collection/museum.John is no longer with us.Hard to say where he obtained this one from.Like the others there is no record or tags detailing where/who/how it was obtained.
Great Helmet.I had this in hand for a personal look.

Gary is a contributor on the Trigger Time Forum and actually does Airborne reenactment jumps so, I have no reason to question his determination of that helmet being AB. Yours looks very much like that one. Since Cesar has it in his book, maybe he could post a copy of that helmet for comparison. I don't want to violate any copyrights on his book but, he can give the OK for it.

Airborne Glider Infantry Regiment's did not have the M-2 or M-1C's. Also, many AB groups came in on boats on D-Day. Many others were replacements whose only jumps consisted of Tail-gate jumps. Again, many of these never got AB lids.
im probably being a bit dim here but if this is an airborne helmet i cant seem to see the extra tabs to fix it to the liner or have i gone blind :think:
