Need help dating helmet


Recommended Posts

I'm no expert with M1 helmets but I would say 1950's, WW2 helmets had different liner webbing and I believe fixed bails holding the chinstraps. Gildwiller should be able to confirm for sure.    

Here are the pictures as others may be wary of clicking on links.

The OD webbing color was introduced in late WW2, however the chinstrap design is a type used from the 1950's to the 70's. The shell may or may not be WW2, it is a rear seamed model. Do you see a heat stamp? It would be located towards the brim on the interior of the shell. It was not uncommon to use WW2 shells in Korea.
