M1 helmet with 3 loops


M24SWS

Recommended Posts

Greetings all. My son in law has an M1 helmet that has 3 chinstrap loops. It is a front seam, the exterior is the normal textured green.  It is stamped inside with a heat / lot number 846G (which if the list is to be believed matches March 1944). The 3rd loop is at the center rear of the helmet. Any thoughts anyone has I am very interested to hear.  Thank you, ~scott

The Israeli version of the M-1 had this configuration.

Interesting. This shell is a WWII US production that was modified post-war for Israeli use; anyone noticed the front seam and 846G heat stamp?
