Overall the paint scheme has truly stood the test of time, offering very vibrant and strong colors. Looking towards the inside, the helmet is luckily complete with its original M1917 steel liner band, though missing its leather pads.Interestingly, a rope can be noted being fed through either vent lug. This was done to prevent high winds causing a whistling noise while being worn. Often these lugs were filled with mud, and therefore this rope is just another unique characteristic of this particular helmet.
Overall a true top shelf helmet worthy of a museum display. Please note : All of our items are used, and we rely heavily on photographs to help us give accurate descriptions of our listings.
