Wartime M1 helmets

35.00 plus postage. This is a good deal. You'll still need a helmet liner, and webbing straps. I can restore these helmets and for those in the group looking for a pot this guy would be a good place to get one from.

I tell you what that's a good price!!

I would personally want one as I'm after another pot for put a ceratin white bar on the back lol!

Is anyone else interested? If we can get 10 they work out as 27 a pot which I think is a good price!

The price seems OK. I'd recommend that you get some fixed bails spot welded though for a Normandy impression (yes, I know there's proof that there were swivel bails in Normandy, but I think there are only two photographs showing them whole Normandy campaign!)

They're original front seam shells though, so with some texturing they'll be good helmets. Mike's a decent guy and very accommodating, too.

Cheers,
Ben.

Thanks guys that 3 all together so far!

My plan was to give them to Paul (if he doesn't find) for fixed bale conversion!!
