    Item Description: For sale: Late WWII McCord Radiator M1 helmet

    Heat lot # 1235D places the helmet as a March-April 1945 production piece. Helmet is a rear seam swivel bail variant with sewn OD7 chinstraps with blackened brass hardware with flat buckle, and is wearing an unissued green British made 1/4" camouflage net. Helmet liner is a high pressure version produced by Firestone during the mid-1944 to 1945 timeframe. The exterior of the liner has been repainted (likely post-war...looks to be KW or earlier period paint IMO). The liner features OD3 HBT cotton suspension, black oxidized brass A washers with brass rivets, a removeable chinstrap with an anchor marked steel buckle (Chinstrap is post WWII, but I am including it just as a filler piece as it appears almost identical to a correct black coated brass buckle.), a green bar buckle sweatband produced by L&N Specialties (November 1943 contract), and an adjustable nape strap with black oxidized brass snaps produced by Scholl Manufacturing Co. (circa 1944-1945).

    Aside from the repaint on the liner's exterior and the laundry number stamps, helmet set otherwise appears to be in nearly mint, unused condition.

    Asking $225 FTF in OKC area. Willing to ship upon request.
