Ww2 Us 506th Pir M1 Paratrooper Helmet Airborne Fixed Bale :
Fixed bale M1 helmet with 506th PIR tactical unit markings, 1st LT rank, and follow me stripe in the rear. I purchased this helmet several years ago as an original WW2 paratrooper helmet shell. At the time it was missing its chinstraps. The set of chinstraps currently on the helmet is an original set of WW2 straps that are the correct early raised bar brass buckle type for a fixed bale helmet. The chinstraps are just hanging on the bales and have not been re-sewn, I just added them for display purposes and they will be included with the helmet as they are a very good match. The shell is a Schlueter. Inside the helmet shell is stamped "War Reject" in black. I don't have any history on the helmet other than the two collectors who owned this helmet before I did. Please be your own judge on the tactical markings, I don't know if they are real or not but they certainly don't look like the run of the mill fakes out there. If these are in fact the real deal this could be a chance to acquire a super rare WW2 Paratrooper helmet for the famous 506th PIR. If you need additional photos just send me a message, only let me upload 12.
