  1. It could be only for 645th Recon but I am not 100% sure. 3rd similar helmet I know of found in France. I hope you will be able to clean it easily. I have the pictures of the 2 others but just don't know where they are right now.
  2. Sorry I got mixed up in my last post. It's from the 645th TD Bn attached to the 45th. Not the 636th.
  3. Yes one of the 517th- There was a thread on Trigger Time about it but the photos and most of the interesting content were deleted a long time ago. Talking about Easy Green helmets, I recenty saw one of his creations sell for big bucks at a French Militaria sale; a Red Bull Div with frontal NCO rank.
  4. Hello, I never thought I would find a Medic helmet and there it was last June.
  5. Hello, sorry for that. The angle of the picture made me think of a repro. I saw the 111th engrs helmet, it's really nice. Only one I have ever seen.
  6. The shape of the rim and the dark inside color makes me think of a repro Hawley liner.
  7. Hello, liner looks like a Hawley repro. I had never seen that one but it certainly looks terrible. So that is the 4th marine raider repro around ?
  8. Was this one also sent back to the seller or is it only the one featured on page 1 ? Thanks.
  9. Hello, what a strange ending to this whole episode. This is one of the weirdest M1 helmet stories I ever read of. I hope this will help the OP to benefit from more experience and confidence for his future purchases.
  10. Hello, To keep up with this thread, here are a few helmets from the collection.
  11. Hello, On the screen caps posted by Justin, we can clearly see there is absolutely no wear/use/age to the burlap cover, the sewing and the string; even the knot on the last picture has the string all fluffy, which is not a good sign. Looks like some typical Johnny Kash work. Does someone have a picture of the 29th helmet it was sold with ? _________________________ Admin Edit: for those who have no clue as to who "Johnny Kash" is, it is Jammie Kashetta. It would be best for our members to come out and say who they think it is rather than trying to be coy as several posters on this thread
  12. Hello I just noticed you posted 20 messages in this thread about this helmet. Are you also the buyer of the 36th helmet ? The 36th helmet is really beautiful, one of a kind and 100% original. Congratulations to the buyer.
