Oh my, that 5th Supply helmet is exceptional.  

 

That is a couple of smokin' bell crowns in the background too.  

 

Thank you.  :)

Here is mine that I posted several years ago. I was given the grouping in 1971 from the widow and wore it in 1973 for the Veterans Day parade float in Grand Forks ND. Rode the entire way with the last surviving North Dakota veteran of the Spanish American War

Here is my latest.  Identified to Harry W. Ourant 67th Company who was involved in the 67th Company's assault on Hill 142 in the predawn hours of June 6, 1918.  He was later WIA outside of Vierzy on July 18, 1918.

Here's another from my collection belonging to Pvt. Walter Hamm 8th MG Co.  ( the chin strap is not pulled over the brim, that is how it was acquired from the family and the photos were not taken by me).
