This M1 helmet and liner have been carefully brought back to life with painstaking detail. This is evident in the use of "United Carr" marked hardware on the liner chinstrap / nape straps and, most importantly, by the use of actual shuttle loomed 20/2 mercerised yarn olive drab #3 chinstrap and herring bone twill (HBT) suspension webbing. This webbing was made on one of our three original WWII era shuttle loom that we have restored.
At Top Pots, we are not just "reproducing" WWII webbing... we are "remaking" it... on the only set of functional original WWII era Saurer looms in the business!
If you are looking for a restored US WWII helmet with the correct Type II Mil-Spec 530 11 row weave chain-pattern and 20/2 mercerised herring bone twill suspension cloth, making it indistinguishable from an original, this is for you!
This restored US M1 helmet is complete as shown and includes the following:
This is the finest restored US WWII M1 helmet available and would make a fine addition to any collection, costume, display, re-enacting impression or presentation as a gift.
