US M1 Helmet with Liner - 2nd Armored Division Tribute Design
US M1 Helmet with Liner - 2nd Armoured Division Tribute Design During WW2.
Original M1 Helmet, refurbished with a new cover of paint and refreshed fittings.
This Original M1 Helmet is in very good condition when we got hold of it, and has since refurbished it to make it an excellent helmet for reenactors and collectors. It was originally issued to the Belgian forces in the UN, who used the American M1 design for many years after WW2.
We have given it a new lease of life using our US Olive Drab Spray paint. It has a plastic, post-war liner owing to its post-war issue. The helmet has also had the chin strap hand sewn on as per WW2 helmets.
This particular helmet has been designed as a tribute to the 2nd Armored Division during WW2. The helmet has had the 2nd Armored Division insignia hand painted on the front of the helmet. The commonly awarded nickname, 'Hell on Wheels', has also been hand painted on the rear of the helmet. The silhouette of a Sherman tank adorns both sides of the helmets. The operations and conflicts that the 2nd Armoured Division took part in are noted in red. The locations where the division fought during World War 2 are noted in white.
Please note that as these helmets are hand painted to order, a degree of variation should be expected.
Please allow an extra 4 weeks for delivery as these helmets are made to order and to gain the appropriate finish, they need suitable time for drying at various stages of production. Please Note: Our Customisation and Film Set Specialist is currently working off site on a TV project. There will likely be an additional month delay on all custom made helmets. Expected return to normal, mid to late June.
