  1. Hello, I have had this helmet for ages and would like to know if the use of pencil is a common practice. Facts - Shell: - fixed bail - repainted at some point - on the new paint : the 30th ID insignia drawn with pencil and a capital G - under the paint, a NCO bar on the rear - inside the shell, a name : Fred Simon who appears as a staff Sergeant in the HQ Co (117/1st/Hq) - liner: - same insignias, but this time the 30th ID was made using what I believe is a rubber stamp Has anyone ever seen this practice ?

    Hello, thank you for the comment and for editing the messages that were out of context. Well noted for what regards the grouping Vs. sum of part. I will add this information to the ad Max

    Fake A-2

    Hello, I don't know if I should have said that I bought it from Warpath but I found fair at the time to disclose the whole story. My intention was not to fingerpoint a seller but to give a whole context. I posted this jacket on a marketplace and received some bad reviews. No one in particular that I know of though. However, since my intention is to sell this jacket, I prefer to make sure of its originality and remove it if necessary. Thank you for the other people who kindly responded and reassured me, it is very much appreciated Ma

    Fake A-2

    Hello, I bought this jacket a while back from Warpath (Ed Hick) but it has been flagged as fake recently. I would like to get your opinion on it as I am trying to sell the grouping to finance another item Thanks, Max
  5. Hello, hopefully yes someone would have more info. It's crazy how nothing you can find. Based on your post I assume they have been on the PTO at some point but I am not even sure of that Thanks Max
  6. Hello, Is there any way to know more about the route of the 467th PFAB. Also, is there any roster available ? thanks, Max
  7. Hi Ran, the blue arch is the marking of the 1st Engineer Special Brigade that landed and operated on Utah Beach, operating Rhino together with the 81st NCB However, I thought that Seabees were not directly under the ESB and should have worn a blue/grey stripe ! Thiw is why I was wondering if the pot had any marking There have been a couple found in France and I would love to find one but I think the offers you have received are fair. Max
  8. Hi, 81st NCB was indeed on Utah How did you - link the liner with the pot ? - link the name with the 81st NCB Very cool helmet and too bad it's not for sale Max
  9. Dave, that's a great chart, thank you Max
  10. It was a really nice helmet but saying this is a d-day one is a bit farfetch w/o name. There weren't hospital ships only off the coast of Normandy
  11. Hi James, thanks for following-up on that ! I've already tried that but let me check once again ! Best Max
  12. Hello Ray, this is the one I have spent some time on yesterday, thank you ! There was almost a match but unfortunately only an homonym from another state thanks Max
  13. Hello, thank you ! the tab really looks like this one: Max
  14. Hello, nothing in the 13th airborne roster found online Any idea where I could find the 13th by any chance ? thank you, Best, Max
