WWII M1 helmet shell, made by Schlueter. Front seam with a stainless steel rim. Stamped 355A. Has good original paint and prominent cork texture. Shows light wear and tear, about what you would expect from an issued helmet. The chinstrap was missing so we set up our od3 midwar on it. We used to offer these "as is" but everyone asks for the strap, so we do them in advance.
What I like about this helmet is it has all the features Schlueter's are known for poured into this one lid. The narrow front, bell curve to the back, high topped dome and waves across the back. The stainless steel rim is a also a nice plus. Usually you get one or two of these features in a Schlueter but all of them at once is a collecting bonus!
This one is perfect for field use or finishing up a display!
