Named M1 fixed bail with painted emblem XV Corps

Recommended Posts


I finally got this M1 helmet. It was overpainted post war and the unit emblem was uncovered by the previous owner.

So I also removed the rest of the paint as good as possible.

Here are some quick shots.

The liner is made by Westinghouse.

It would be great to read some opinions as I don't have very much experience with the details of M1 helmets and especially with the liners.

The heat stamp is not placed on the front but on the right side of the shell reading 365 B.

Also there's a name inside the shell: "Paaby" Do you maybe have any information to this soldier?

What would be the market price for such a piece?

Best regards,
