  1. I’m no expert on airborne helmets, but I like the paint wear on the shell. Lots of nicks and scratches that don’t look artificial or made by the same tool. The rust does not look artificial either. Just my 2 cents
  2. That helmet looks fine. As huntssurplus just showed, I used to own one of them back in my early collecting stages. What you see in the auction is residue of the tape used to make the marking.
  3. If you don’t want to mess with it at all, just don’t buckle it around the back of the helmet. That gives it the most tension
  4. Judging by the fake helmet under it and the plethora of problems with the 101st helmet. I'd say no one is rushing to buy this one.
  5. The current seller is not the original buyer. Im glad to hear that who I sold it to is not the unethical one.
  6. Just wanted to give a heads up on this one. I used to own this one before and sold it a few months ago. While the 5th ID helmet shell is original, there was no liner with it when I purchased it. Not sure if the current seller added it, or someone between me or him. https://www.ebay.com/itm/WW-2-PAINTED-US-ARMY-M1-HELMET-WITH-5TH-INF-DIV-INSIGNIA-FRONT-SEAM-NAMED/312989098387?hash=item48df9aa193:g:sSMAAOSweaBeQdy7
  7. Wanted to bring this back up with one of mine that was worn in country. Anyone have more to share?
  8. They do look similar, but the triangles in the period photo are spaced out farther than the ones on the helmet.
  9. Ah so it was you who snagged it! I hope you will be able to find more information. Russ
  10. Nice ones! They definitely didn't want anyone stealing their stuff
  11. Awesome collection, and very professionally displayed. You are definitely living up to the phrase "quality not quantity"!
  12. Beautiful M90, you don't see many with nets. Russ
