WWII US Army Restored Original M1 Infantry Helmet Swivel Bale Shell and Liner with 2nd Ranger Officer Captain Miller Metal Rank and Net
This listing is for an all reproduction M1 shell and liner, with full accessories, that has been restored to represent a WWII era M1 swivel bale infantry helmet. This helmet restoration has been done with painstaking detail. It even has a set of olive drab #3 chinstraps, whose webbing was made on one of our three original WWII era Shuttle Looms, something we normally reserve for use only on our genuine WWII era helmet restorations.
At Top Pots, we are just not "reproducing" WWII webbing... we are now "remaking" it... on a set of original WWII era Saurer looms too!
If you are looking for a premium, but economical, US WWII infantry helmet, this is for you. The helmet will come exactly as shown. As mentioned before, it even sports a pair of our historically correct shuttle loomed Type II Mil-Spec 530 11 row weave chain-pattern chinstrap sets, and fitted out with a complete infantry liner suspension and accessory kit. The quality of the items and time put into creating this helmet clearly makes this all reproduction M1 infantry helmet better than other vendor's restored originals.
It includes the following:
This is the finest restored US WWII M1 infantry helmet available and would make a fine addition to any collection, costume, display, re-enacting impression or gift.
Just a quick note to say we are in the final stages of importing what may be one of the last large caches of original US WWII M1 helmets and liners (full cargo container full). To say this, along with being forced to run every strand of yarn on the three 80 year old original shuttle looms we had, has been a distraction the past 18 months, is putting it mildly, but we pulled it off.
All current custom helmet and clothing orders are being processed and will be updated as they go out the door.
More info, pics and video on the import and the final helmet webbing production will be posted over the next few months. At the moment we gotta get caught up on helmets... and make space!
