Unfortunately there is now way to precisely date a WWII M1 helmet based on the manufacturer’s lot number (and it is a lot number, not a heat number). The authors of Helmets of the ETO published a table purporting to date McCord helmets based on lot number, but the table isn’t based on primary-source documentation. It’s merely an extrapolation or guesswork.

Yes sir, I got them from a grouping of a Solders his name was Uncle Louie. At Bellwood flea market. Both are rear seam and could be rewelded bails to swivel, or rebuilt.Attatch is the picture of the Soldier
