Does anyone have any insight on this M-1 Helmet and Liner that I just purchased?

I'm interested in anything to do with the 17th Infantry Regiment, and or the 7th Infantry Division and would be interested in buying, trading, or just talking about any items related to these units!

Other than it's a very good looking helmet, sorry no. Due to the dog/wolf head it could be possibly related to 27th infantry regiment "wolfhounds" - they were part of the 7th Infantry Division in the late '80's and early 90's. Fort Ord & Panama.

Yeah, I don't think that it's 27th Infantry Related ... Maybe Some type of security K-9, etc .. It wouldn't have been Fort Ord in the early 80s or 90's as I served with the 7th ID then and we had Kevlar helmets then .. This has to be Korea or late 70s at Fort Ord ... Not sure??

From the style of Specialist chevron and the dog's head insignia, I'd say it was used in Korea by a dog handler between 1955 and 1959. The "MSA" could for a _____Security Area.

When was that non-color bearing unit DUI for the 7th Infantry Division approved? That will help pin point a time period.

From the TIOH

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 16 June 1965.  It was amended to be manufactured and worn in pairs on 11 April 1966.
