The carefully preserved and restored US WWII Army M1 helmets and liners we “bring back to life” for sale are usually completed in batches of 40 helmet shells and 40 liners. We try to do a production run every four to six weeks, but Top Pots helmets sell quickly. Delivery time for one of these will depend on the point in time you order and what level of customization you require.
Considering the array of possible WWII US Army M1 infantry and M1C paratrooper helmet tactical emblems, liner manufacturers, shell styles, webbing selection, etc. that are involved, restoring these US WWII M1 helmets can be a very daunting process, one that will test the best of organizational skills. Because of the painstaking detail we chose to apply with every helmet and the steady demand for quality preservation / restoration work, I have developed a system that melds the efficiency of an assembly line with the attention to detail of a craftsman. Having said that, we still have to ask for a degree of patience that seems to be disappearing from this business.
To mitigate this, we restore a solid mix of original US WWII M1 Fix, Swivel and D Bale (M2) helmet shells in every production run, but, in the end, they all still sell quickly. To be safe, please allow about four – six weeks for delivery, sometimes more, especially if custom emblem painting is involved.
All Top Pots restored US WWII Army M1 helmets and liners are mailed via Australia Post’s EMS International Service Delivery Service. Once posted, they will arrive in most destinations in about four – five business days. Full tracking will be provided once the helmet is shipped and will be able to be monitored by the customer on their country’s postal website.
All reproduction WWI and WWII era clothing provided by Top Pots are mailed via EMS International. They too will be ultimately delivered by your country’s local postal service. Please allow three – four weeks for these orders for arrival from date of order.
Unlike most online military clothing businesses, we recognize how daunting buying clothing online can be. So we take a bit of extra time at the beginning to personally contact each customer to make sure we get it right, which other business’s will not. Please allow one week for sizing, product confirmation and payments processing, two weeks for postal delivery and an additional week for Murphy’s Law. J
Reproduction and original WWII US Army M1 Infantry and M1C Paratrooper Helmet accessories are sent once a week. They are mailed via standard air freight via Australia Post. Please allow two – three week for delivery of these items, one week for processing and two weeks for delivery.
