S004. NAMED KOREAN WAR, RIGGER MODIFIED REAR SEAM, SWIVEL LOOP M1-C AIRBORNE PARATROOPER HELMET WITH FIRESTONE LINER. STEEL HELMET HAS A COUPLE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PAINT ON IT WHICH GIVES IT A CAMOUFLAGE APPEARANCE. THERE IS A BLACK STRIPE PAINTED FROM THE REAR ACROSS THE TOP TO THE FRONT ENDING AT A POINT JUST BELOW THE BRIM. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS MARKING REPRESENTS. THERE IS A NAME AND SERIAL NUMBER PAINTED INSIDE THE FRONT BRIM. THE SOLDIER ENLISTED IN 1946 AND A COPY OF HIS NARA ENLISTMENT RECORD WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE HELMET. THE OD WEB CHINSTRAPS BOTH RETAIN THE EXTRA STRAP WITH THE MALE SNAP FOR ATTACHING TO THE LINER. THE CHINSTRAPS SHOW AVERAGE USE AND WEAR WITH LIGHT STAINING. THE LINER IS MADE BY FIRESTONE AND WAS RIGGER MODIFIED TO AIRBORNE CONFIGURATION WITH THE ADDITION OF TWO OD WEB “A” FRAMES AND TWO FEMALE SNAPS. THE LIGHT OD WEBBING IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH NO DAMAGE. GOOD LEATHER SWEATBAND AND NAPE STRAP. THE OD WEB CHIN CUP HAS FOUR ADJUSTMENT HOLES ON EACH SIDE WITH BRASS GROMMETS.
