USM1 camouflage helmet « MARINE RAIDERS »
Very nice and rare USM1 camouflage helmet « MARINE RAIDERS ». An early fixed bale front seam helmet with a burlap netted camouflage brush painted finish. Early brass style fittings are attached to the web straps - all factory done. The helmets exterior features a really nice and unique camouflage application. The burlap was first applied and secured with a net before the application of camouflage. The camouflage was hand applied by brush in two main US colors of green and brown. The paint is all over the materials and in a way secures both to the helmet underneath. The interior features an early Hawley liner complete with the absence of the chinstrap. A couple of light cracks are present but overall very solid. The helmet was sourced years ago out of the woodwork. These US camouflage helmets are much rarer than their German counterparts. The pinnacle of any US headgear collection.
