Korean War US Army Restored Original M1C Paratrooper Airborne Helmet and Liner

For the most authentic museum quality restored original M1C Korean War era M1C paratrooper helmet and liner for sale – look no further!

This is a totally restored original US M1 helmet and liner with accessories that has been converted to represent the rare Korean War M1C paratrooper model worn by the US Army airborne units during the Korean War. This M1C helmet conversion has been conducted with painstaking detail, such as the use of United Carr marked hardware on the liner nape strap and, more importantly, the use of actual shuttle loomed 20/2 mercerized yarn olive drab #7 A strap and HBT suspension webbing. All of which were made on the only functional original WWII era shuttle looms in existence.

At Top Pots, we are not "reproducing" WWII webbing... we are actually remaking it... on three WWII era Saurer Shuttle Looms with the original cams!

So, if you are looking for a US WWII Korean War jump helmet and liner with the most authentic A yoke and Herring Bone Twill suspension webbing, this is for your helmet. This particular liner represents the standard model, which would have been used in combat operations such as Operation Tomahawk. This is simply the best Korean War M1C paratrooper helmet liner for re-enactors, air-soft clubs and collectors made exclusively by Top Pots.
