Chin Strap Us Army Usmc For M1 Wwii & Vietnam Helmet For Sale

Chin Strap Us Army Usmc For M1 Wwii &  Vietnam  Helmet

This listing is forONE mint, never-issued two-pieceM1 helmet replacement chinstrap. It is genuine US government issue, NOT a copy or reproduction. It will comefroman original factory box (as shown above). These straps were produced in the USA between 1965 and 1972 by the original manufacturer: North and Judd Mfg. Co. in New Britain, Connecticut.

They are made of OD#7 (olive green) cotton webbing andcome with a DULL black-oxide metal finish with crimp-on tabs. They have the T1 "ball and hook" release and are correct for the post-Korea through post-Vietnam period (1959 - 1982) but will fit any year US- typesteel pot. Straps are 16inches long when the two sides are connected.

These type straps were used by US Forces from November 1944 until about 1982. They began to be replaced in the 1980s by a nylon/cotton split-chin hook-in strap that didn't require pliers for installation. The1980's strapslooked somewhat similar to earlierairborne liner chin straps.

Let me know if you'd like a strap with an anchor. Unless you tell me otherwise, at checkout or when you pay, I will ship the one without the anchor. These two types of straps are identical except for the anchor stamping*.

Do not confuse these with thin-metal "NATO" chinstraps sold elsewhere on . They don't call them NATO straps and they look similar and will work OK, but if they have painted black metal parts, they're likely not US made. Also, they often cost more than real ones. Why pay more for a copy? All of our straps are returns from Vietnam.

You are offerding on ONE chinstrap of your choice, NOT TWO. Original boxescontaining 50 straps are shown for reference only and are not included. Your strap will come from one of these boxes. These straps were never individually packaged.

Shipping by first class mail is FREEin the US and $3 to anywhere else. Delivery confirmation is included in the US. In the event of loss outside the US we will provide proof of mailing only.

*Apparently, the anchorlogo was first used in the mid-sixties and was discontinued when the manufacturer, North and Judd, was acquired by Gulf and Western Industries in1967. Chinstraps produced after 1967 had NO anchor although some boxes dated as late as 1969 still contained anchor straps. Most collectors prefer straps without the anchor simply because they're harder to find. We have plenty of both in our inventory.

The last picture is me wearing my M1 in 1969.
