  1. Interesting. What makes you think that? Trying to learn.
  2. Sure? As there is no I in front of the heat stamp? I thought it might be a Parish Division of Dana Corp. made shell.
  3. Hi guys, can you please help me date this M1 helmet, especially the shell? I already found a stamp in the liner (1961) and the Mitchell cover was made by Capitol Fur Inc., so that would be 1967. See below some photos of the shell. The heat stamp is 8711? This is my first helmet, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  10. Patch looks good to me! Nice WWII period, cut edge patch. I am 99% sure it will not glow under UV light.
