WWII 1939 US Military M1917A1 "Doughboy" Style Helmet

The M1917A1, adopted in 1939, had only minor changes and was visually almost identical. In 1941, the M1917A1 helmet was replaced. In 1939, the M1917A1 improved version of the WW I helmet was introduced with the same steel "tin hat" shell, but with several other changes. A leather liner with hair-filled pads and two-piece canvas webbing chinstrap (with brass hook and buckle) made the updated version far more comfortable and sturdier than the M1917 original. A small nut at the apex of the helmet holds the liner in place. The M1917A1 weighs two pounds, six ounces.

Stamped on the inside front rim of the helmet is 5A. The leather liner & chinstrap seems to have no apparant wear and seems almost new, however, LW Oswald 0910070 has been written onto the leather.
