Original WWII manufacture M1 helmet with Vietnam War era MP markings.
Manufactured by Schlueter in WWII this helmet has a front seamed manganese rim and legible S stamp. The heat stamp is a bit hard to read and appears to be stamped 318A. The exterior has smoothed over and is repainted. The 268th MP Company markings are original. The original od3 WWII sewn chin strap is fully intact and in very good condition. Helmet has no cracks and only some light denting on the dome.
It appears this MP company was reorganized numerous times throughout history. In Vietnam the were reorganized three times and eventually assigned to the 30th Armored Division. Would be a fun company to research!
