Original WWII M1 helmet and liner. McCord Radiator fixbail with Inland liner. Complete with all components. Very good to excellent used condition.

Helmet has fixed chinstrap loops with front seamed rim. Stamped 335E. Sewn chin strap made of od3 webbing with blackened brass hardware. Overall showing minimal wear with no cracks or dents to mention. The liner, manufactured by Inland, is an early version that accepts a rayon snap-in headband. The webbing is single weave od3 webbing secured with parkerized steel -A- washers. Exterior looks great with smooth dark od paint. There is a rim crack at the 4 o'clock position. Leather chinstrap has green painted hardware. Headband is made by S.M.C. and features early spring clips and a neat variation in the way the webbing is stitched to the leather. Neckband markings are no longer legible but it does have a soldier's laundry mark. Leather chinstrap, headband and neckband are original.

The painted medic panel "looks" original but I do not believe it to be authentic, see notes* below.

Regardless of the liner's marking being real or not, this is an outstanding example of an early WWII helmet with a hard to find liner. It would make a great addition to any budding or advanced collection!

*Some additional information regarding the medic panel. When I bought this liner it had lightning rods drawn in marker on each side and a crudely done second medic panel in the back. Also, the rivet heads where hastily painted white. I would guess these extracurriculars where done at some time or another by a child who wanted some added flair on their play toy. I suppose it could be that the front panel is just that too. However, it looks good and fits the condition of the liner well. I chemically removed the "extras" and left the front panel intact. Do I think it is authentic? I'm not going to stake our reputation on a medic panel, so my answer must be no, I do not believe it is authentic. But you better believe it will always bother me that I can't know for sure. And whoever it was that couldn't resist the urge to molest this beautiful helmet liner with a marker can suck an egg.
