Original Danish M1 Helmet with Liner

The M1 Helmet is two "one-size-fits-all" helmets. It has an outer metal shell, sometimes called the "steel pot", and a "hard hat" type liner that is nestled inside the shell and contains the suspension system that would be adjusted to fit the wearer's head. The M1 design, popularised by the US, was adopted in 1941 to replace the outdated M1917 A1 "Kelly" helmet. Approximately 22 million M1 steel helmets were manufactured in the US by the end of World War II. A second US production run of approximately one million helmets was made in 1966–1967. 

Made from durable steel, these brilliantly preserved, original, gunmetal grey, Danish M1 clone helmets come stamped internally with a "CF" marking which stands for Civil Forvaret (Civil Defence) and the Danish Crown, to confirm authenticity. The hard hat style liner has an internal leather lined suspension system which, along with the canvas chin strap, is fully adjustable to allow most sizes of head to fit comfortably within. 

These Danish M1 design helmets are perfect for any reenactors collection
