  1. Thanks for the reply. Did they have the locking clamps for the lids like on the M41's?
  2. UPNATM, I was trying to see the pictures of the different inserts for the round mermite cans, can you repost them? Thanks
  3. Here's my '55 M170. Photographed at Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas.
  4. The first two photo's are what I was wondering about. Those pics are from the Ebay auction I was watching. Did you buy them or were you selling or just watching like I was. Now that I know what they look like I'll keep looking. Do these 3 inserts take the place if one of the round pans? I have two pans and looking for one more.
  5. I have a round '42 dated mermite can and two of the inserts. Did these cans use three pie shaped containers in place of one of the inserts? Does anyone have some pictures of these? Any info is appreciated.
  6. Thanks BOLO, the other one is just as nice except it doesn't have the leather parts. Not a bad deal for $17.50 a piece!
  7. Close up of the ordnance stamp...
  8. I finally got around to taking some pictures. Let me know what you think. Pictures didn't load so I'll figure it out.
  9. Does anyone make repro leather linings and pads for the M1917A1's ?
  10. Thanks to all for the info. These helmets are very nice and I was surprised to find them where I did, in a rural town resale shop. They appear to be very slightly used or almost unissued, one is missing the leather lining but the metal liner frame is there and very nice. The other is complete with the leather lining and head pad with storage wear, both have original chin straps, some slight rust damage on one. Original cork finish and paint on both are nice. I'll try to get a couple of pictures posted soon. Thanks!
  11. Hello, I recently purchased two M1917A1 helmets and was wondering who they were made by. I believe they were made by McCord Radiator. They have numbers stamped on the inside rim, one is 18A and the other is 22C. Thanks for any info you might have. I'm new to the forum but not to militaria, my primary interest are WWII vehicles and Living History with a little reenactment sprinkled in. Thanks Again,
