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.
