Nice original US M1 Helmet and Liner both named to soldier. The helmet is stamped with the name CA SMITH and the liner has the same name stamped on the sweatband. Shell also has remnants of some sort of adhesive that show the letters MP. This helmet set has not been “married” and both are an original matched set and they are getting harder and harder to find today. Both have been together since the war. Helmet shell has all original paint and corking showing some obvious wear from use. Shell is stamped 544D putting production at approx. Chinstraps have brass hardware with raised bar buckle and J Hook. Stainless Steel rim, Front Seam and Fixed Loop. (one dent in rear). Shell is named CA SMITH ink stamped on front. Complete with exception of chinstrap. Sweatband is missing one clip (I have an extra if requested) that has CA SMITH name ink stamp. No rips or tears to the webbing. Green painted washer hardware. Mid 1944 production liner. Preliminary research shows several CA SMITH’s showing service in the Navy. Based on stamp and other examples in the collecting arena I believe this was a Navy or Marine used helmet. I have not done any other research and do not have any other info on CA SMITH. 100% original unmolested named pre D-Day produced helmet set. These sets are getting harder and harder to find.

An original and complete USN / AN 6510 Seat Parachute Assembly. The main chute assembly appears to be the AN 6510 designated type/design which was basically the same issue to the USAAF, USMC & USN during WWII – I have also seen the nomenclature S1 for the harness assembly and S2 for the 24 ft seat chute. White / cream straps with center dark seam (circa WWII) & with the correct metal fittings and snaps – all functional. Red rip cord metal pull intact. AN stamp in circle stamp on chute pack. Pack is numbered both sides. Other terms also used QAS – Quick Attach Seat & QFA Quick Fit Assembly. Parachute manufactured by SWITLIK PARACHUTE Co Trenton NJ. Back Rest / Pad and Seat Cushion / Pad both in place. The parachute canopy is fully packed and appears not been removed for a long time. The packing/record slip is missing but I was told this seat parachute came from NAS Whitby and was used for aircrew / pilot training immediate post 1945. The chute assembly was kept in a parachute bag for many years and is very clean overall. Overall one of the best looking seat parachutes I have seen for some time.
