Recommended Posts

Hello folks! Just joined this forum last night and wanted to share some of my items. Today I’ll be showing you my WW2 Captains M1.

 

The shell is a front seam, fixed bail Schleuter with the heatstamp 55A S, signifying early/mid 1943 production. Chinstraps are OD 3, with raised brass hardware. Rim is stainless steel.

 

The liner is MSA, retaining 95+% of its original paint. It features OD 3 suspension with a (presumably) replaced, non adjustable napestrap.

 

I hope you enjoy!

I recognize this one :).  Great Patina and always nice to see a Schlueter fixed loop.

 

Very Nice WWII Helmet Set!
