Show us your M-1 Helmets!

Recommended Posts

I'll get this started with some pictures from my collection, there will be more to come... I don't have photos of all of my helmets as of now.

First off,

This is a 5th ID helmet, unnamed, with the 5th ID diamond on the front, and remnants of an NCO stripe on the back...

Here's one of my officer helmets... a 2nd Lt, welded insignia... The insignia has lost its bronze/gold over the years, but it's still noticable...

The helmet is named to a Captain Dewers. Instead of Capt. bars, "aiming stakes" are on both sides, but you can see where the bars were scratched out and painted over...

It's an unnamed captains helmet, but for some reason, it's my favorite in my collection...

A liner used in Pakistan, China, and Burma: mid- to late-war Firestone, blackened hardware, pretty soiled and salty.

A collection of Vietnam-era repainted and issued helmets. Three of them are WWII made shells, while the rest are post-war. All have mid-late 60's era liners. The painted helmets you see were done by myself when I was a kid. Please ignore the helmet farthes to the right on the front row; it is not an M1.
