WW2 USMC M-1 & Cover - Need ID Assistance Please! Post 1

Recommended Posts



I recently acquired this helmet from a dealer friend at a local militaria show and need some assistance identifying several of its components. I will have to make several posts in order to get all my questions asked and photos posted. Please bare with me! I am just starting to collect USMC items and there is a lot to learn. I really appreciate your help with my questions!

First question is about the sweatband, I have never seen one like this before. It's color is a blue-grey, almost black color material on HBT cloth. Is this a period correct WW2 item of USA manufacture? If so when were these issued?

Thank you,

Vince Leone





The true test comes to us all, though rarely at the time or in the manner we would choose. So keep your powder dry, watch your 6 & Stand Fast!
