M1 T5 Medic Shell

Recommended Posts

This four panel M1 Tech. 5 Medic shell was recovered in an abandoned house in my area years ago, covered by 50 years of debris.

After being carefully cleaned this veteran earned a special place in my collection as one of my favourite.

 

After all this time I'm still wondering if the tiny white vertical line and dot in the back may have been tactical markings of some sort (EM bar?).

I'm inclined to think they're not just accidental paint strokes or splotches since a close look reveals that both have been done delimiting the area by carving the helmet' surface prior painting. Experts please.
