Salty Schlueter Fixed bail


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

A friend of mine picked this up at a yard sale years ago. It is a Schlueter Fixed bail with CAPAAC liner. It appears to have a couple of Shrapnel dents in the rear...

Exterior has original paint on both the liner and helmet. Both have been well used. Named to Joe C. Helmet is missing buckle. Helmet is marked 109 A with the Schlueter S.

Liner suspension, nape strap and sweatband are all maker marked.

How does it look?

Thank you in advance...

(Sorry for the pictures, was using his camera)

The dents look like some back yard target practice me.I seen many where someone with a .22 rifle or 38 revolver shot a helmet just to see if they are "bullet proof"

I got a plastic toy M1 helmet for Christmas when I was a kid. A neighbor kid wanted to see if it worked so whacked it with a brick. Unfortunately I was wearing it at the time. And no, it didn't work too well. I could have become an astronomer with all the stars I saw. But I'm feeling much better now.

 

I like the helmet. It's been through the wars, just don't know if they were backyard wars or not.
