  1. I’m originally from Cranston. Pretty sure a kid I grew up with is related to him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. I previously added images of this helmet on another thread. I now have it in my possession, so I thought it deserved it’s own thread. So I picked up this Front Seam swivel bail on eBay. The liner is a Firestone. The shell is covered cut camouflaged poncho. The poncho is on the tan side and is quite stiff and firm fitted to the shell. Im actually afraid of moving it much because it seems brittle almost, don’t want it to crack. The shell does exhibit a repaint. I'll post a photo of that too, but its from the seller, I'll get one of mine in the morning. This was listed on eBay, but the title was messed up and images were poor. Also, the seller did not have a history of selling military stuff on eBay. The auction ended without a winner so I reached out, curious. I was able to get the helmet reasonably cheap. After I paid, the seller let me know that he had a bunch of other military stuff I might be interested in. He let me know that the helmet and the other items were found in an attic on in a house he was working on flipping. I’ll attach images of the other items from the seller below. These items are salty from poor storage. They include a web belt with BOYT 44 USMC marked machete, pistol mag pouch with 2, m1911 clips, one of which still has a round in it.
  7. Agreed. Very interested in who created this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Is anyone going the the January 12th event. Or, has anyone ever been? I've never been before, just wondering what to expect. I'm mostly a helmet guy, so any info would be great! Thanks, Pete

  10. Can you give me a link? I can’t seem to find this. I’m interested in what the description says. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Interesting piece. I agree with Owen. M-1 helmets from WW2 era were, as I may imagine, quite readily available. It would be cool to get a small - as Owen put it, a collection of folk art rigs painted from this era. Secondly, I swear I can picture M-1 helmets that were in comedy movies from the 70's that were re-painted, not similarly, but ya know..with hippy shinola on them. I can't quite place it though.
  12. Does this one look like a Marine field re-paint? I've seen others that have nearly the identical shade of green paint this liner exhibits.
  13. I couldn't really tell looking at the images on my iPhone. But looking at them now on my computer, one can definitely see the streaks under the obvious factory repaint. Cool score!
