Just another collector

I found this nice late ww2 M1 helmet in an antique shop. Believe it or not I actually bought it for 38$. Its in good shape except for the leather strap which has ripped and the someone painted it a weird shade of green. The shell looks like it could be maybe a McCord and the liner was made by seaman paper co.

Shame about the chinstrap but the liner alone is worth more than what you paid

It is an interesting color. Im pretty sure thats not a standard color. Ill do some research on it to clarify if Im right or wrong.

I used to own a late world war 2 helmet, that was painted the same color.

 

Interesting. Did you ever take the paint off?

I sold it as is, with a broken liner for 50.00. Mine appeared to have a emblem, painted under the second layer of paint. Possibly a Sgt or petty officer rank, I wondered if it wasn' t navy.

Looks like a possible Navy helmet. Look at this UNREP picture. Notice the green helmet in the picture.

That's a Navy designation color that was related to the sailors job aboard ship.

Appears to be in very good shape.

 

It is in spectacular shape. When I saw it I expected the liner to be practically gone or in fubar shape.

I thought the same thing. How many white Navy helmets have been sold as snow camo?
