No stamps!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just acquired a fixed bail front seam helmet . Original paint and texture but I can not find a stamping of any kind on the inside at all. Does anyone know who made their helmets like that with no stampings? It had a vietnam liner in it and I only paid $20 for it in a antique shop so I seriously dou t it is fake. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Kevin

Or just when cut in the press missed the stamp. Product of manufacturing in mass quantities.

I've had a couple over the years that there simply was not a stamp to be found. Just a manufacturing anomaly.

I've had one or two that had a very light heat number stamp covered in paint. I have since stopped trying to uncover heat stamps on obvious US M1 shells. I agree if yours is a fixed bail and had a US liner in it it probably is US manufactured. Of course pictures would help verify.

Thanks everyone. I'm sure it's legit. I was just wondering if some made it without the stampings
