U.S. M.1 90TH DIVISION COMBAT HELMET.
A good service used and stored example of an M.1 helmet used by a member of the 90th Infantry Division. Light top corrosion mainly to the rear of the shell, good original paint visible to the remainder of the helmet. The faint traces of the TO insignia indicating the 90th Division. One stress crack to the front of the helmet. The identical insignia applied but again only faintly to the inner shell, which retains much service dust and mud. The shell is a fixed bale shell, complete with its webbing chinstraps. The inner liner bands for the fibre liner are complete but broken apart. Evidence of much storage to this helmet. The 90th Division arrived in England in the in April 1944 and first elements of the division saw action on D-Day the 6th June on Utah Beach. The division saw continuous service right to the end of the war but their final positions being just outside Prague in Czechoslovakia. A good battle worn historical helmet.
