Recent pickup direct from a vets family. Its a fixed bail with some camo still present with a 1st pattern Hawley Liner.

The camo looks to be sprayed on to me,

Very nice Jamie! You do have a knack for finding the killer lids! This is an amazing helmet!

 

Nice one!

Not really a knack, just pass over every 10 normal lids, and put feelers out for something better :)

Great strategy! I wish I had the contacts and access to US vets and resources that some other forum members do. Geographically it's harder from Canada to utilize this methodology, but hey, I'm going to start thinking along those lines anyway!

 

Still impressed with this one though! It's got a great look and patina to it!

Thanks Philip, I've been trying to focus more on WWII 82nd airborne than airborne in general.

The airborne lid conveyor belt just keeps on a-rollin'. Nice one Jamie!!

Naww, like i said previously I pass up 10 helmets to save up for one AB lid. It also helps that I've sort of become known as an airborne guy so people contact me sometimes.

Nice helmet, love the used look of it and the grey camo stripes.

 

I do understand your passion for helmets of the 82nd A/B div.
