My ONLY(For Now) WWII 2 M1s

Recommended Posts

Here i have my WWII Executive Officers M-1 Fixed Loop Helmet, just purchased from Scott over at Baystatemilitaria.com and am in love, and also have my first M1 with a Hawley liner, and the leather chinstrap is still intact on both, which is something i absolutely am in love with. Any and all comments are appreciated by you other wonderful people in this hobby. Check them out and do not hold back. Thank you for looking. I will be posting many photos of each, they are too beautiful to not try get every angle.

Thank you, you know im not entirely sure. Was hoping i could get some help on here about that. Maybe it said something that faded, i am not sure about the buckle deals in the back. I believe it to be all original and i think it is just unique. Any help or information by people with vaster knowledge i would surely appreciate.

You picked two very nice helmets to start your collection with!

 

Just be careful, it seems that these helmets have a habit of multiplying after the first few!

It did not last long as Nickman983 had said, i have acquired two more beautiful and complete, WWII helmets. I would love to hear your guys opinions and thoughts on them. Was not able to take the helmets apart from the liners as it was requiring greater force than i wanted to use on them, at this time. Please do view them. I have a USMC covered M1 and a netted M1 for your viewing, and any info or thoughts provided, i will greatly appreciate:) 

 

First up: M1 Netted, i notice a black buckle, not sure about the black. any info appreciated.

Some very nice picks for your first helmets, enjoy the field of helmet collecting.

 

Now, speaking as the owner of Bugme Display Stands, you have this stand assembled incorrectly, those 4 felt pads are supposed to be facing down to protect the surface of your shelf. 🙂

After lots of soul searching the last few weeks, I have decided to go back to school and try purchase my first home. This being the case the collection will have to be put on hold for now, and I would like to see these helmets go to people that love and appreciate them as i have, even if it was ever so briefly. I will be listing these soon and wanted everyone to know, who commented to keep an eye out.! Thank you collecting friends for a great many years.
