Helmet is a WWII manufactured rear seam with a stainless steel rim. Made by McCord Radiator, the heat stamp is not fully legible but looks to read H66 or possibly 1166, in which case it would most likely read 1166A that being a typical target stamp for late war McCord helmets. The original cork texture comes through the exterior repaint and the od3 chinstrap are intact in very good condition. The interior has rust coming through which also went into the cover. There are some stress fractures and light dents on the dome.
The USMC cover is and original WWII era cover with the postwar EGA stamped in black ink on the green and brown side. There are no foliage slits. The black ink stamp is the solid black variation.
The helmet liner is Korean War manufactured. Marked Capac/Westinghouse 51. It has a front eyelet. and good paint with texture. Interior webbing and components show plenty of wear and tear but are still in good overall condition.
All parts are present in field used grade and original. This is a fine example of a postwar Marine Corps helmet of which many are built with a mixture of wartime and postwar parts.
