US WWII M-1 Helmet w/Early Westinghouse Liner-The McCord shell is an early example with a stamp number of 155B which puts its production from April to June of 1942. It is excellent with ever so slight discoloration only. There are square fixed bales with an OD3 chinstrap. The hardware retains a majority of the finish. It is of course a front seam example. The early transitional (May-September 1942 production) Westinghouse liner has a dark green, smooth exterior finish that is mostly intact. There are no cracks or other damage. The suspension is white rayon which has minor discoloration only. The headband is marked J5. The reinforced nape strap has a hand written letter “S” or it could also be a “5”. The unfinished washers are square. The brown leather chinstrap is a fixed, riveted example. It is complete, with some wear. A scarce example is excellent condition!
