Genuine (not current reproduction) US WW2 issue M1 helmet with liner and leather liner chinstrap. Swivel chinstrap bales with later issue chinstraps. Original WW2 liner made by Firestone. Front seam. Scarce Schlueter manufactured with "S" stamping below the heat/shipping stamp which appears to be 38A which would date the helmet from around 1942-1943. Schlueter only made about 10% of the WW2 M1 helmet shells. The liner has been painted black at some stage with soldier applied SS runes. Liner has two small cracks along the edges. The helmet was most likely re-issued during the Korean War. Original used condition. The helmet in the photo is the helmet you receive. See photos for main condition description
