M-1 Helmet Complete, Reenactor: This helmet features an original steel M-1 helmet shell in G to VG condition with correct Vietnam era chinstraps. Helmet liners are late war to immediate post war in VG+ to EXC condition from the mid 1970's. The liners that we use for the helmets are first generation of the removable suspension that started production in late 72. We select liners from the 72 to about 78 time period as they work better in the builds. They were dated with paper labels which pealed out easily, but they all had dark orange or green based interiors and they fit much better into the shells than the later 80's production liners. The 80's era liners are also stamped in ink on the liner itself.

While the liner shells are 70's era, most of the removable suspensions will be 80's dated as we have replaced the used suspensions with unissued webbing so you get a nice, strong, clean suspenion that will work well. Unissed post war nape strap is included and the sweatbands are a mix of DSA and DLA dated USGI in VG to EXC used that have been cleaned and reconditioned. Complete with new reproduction Mitchell Cover and elastic helmet band (or USMC Inner tube band).

The perfect reenacting helmet. The only structural difference between this helmet and the other listed below is the liner hardware. A mid 70's / 80's era liner suspension has round hardware (removable suspension) as opposed to the A shaped internal washers (fixed suspension) found in a VN era liner. Once the sweatband is in place, it is difficult to see the suspension hardware. Based on this, it is the perfect reenacting helmet for those on a budget, or for those who do not want to tear up a collectible liner.
