US WWII M2 D Bale Army Paratrooper Airborne Helmet Shell with Chin Straps (Front Seam)
This is a totally restored US WWII (front seam) McCord Radiator manufactured M1 helmet shell that has been converted to M2 (D Bale) paratrooper airborne helmet specifications. This is one of the most historically accurate helmet restorations available. The helmet has undergone an extensive process where it has been stripped, dent removed, primed, textured, and then painted. The end result is an authentic representation of what a newly issued US WWII M2 paratrooper helmet shell would have looked like in 1942.
This particular helmet comes with a set of attached WWII airborne helmet chin straps. The chin straps are some of the best manufactured reproductions available. They are made with 100% cotton, shuttle loomed, 11 row weave, olive drab #3 (khaki) webbing with a white cotton filler. They come attached (with proper "bar tack" stitching) and are complete with three piece early war brass chin strap hardware and end tabs.
