M1 Style Steel Surplus Helmet with Net: These olive drab surplus helmets are the US M1 style, complete with liner, chinstraps, suspension, sweatband and helmet net. These helmets were used in Europe and have seen very little use. They are in excellent condition showing perhaps some scuff marks, but no major dents, dings, cracks etc., as are usually found on M1 helmets from the U.S. and Europe. A great gift for anyone who served up until the 1980’s.
