    If you would, please post pics of the helmet liners, and look for any marks stamped on them. I have a couple ideas but i need more pics to confirm

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yup more detailed pictures needed. The M1 helmet thatís the first one to the left in the picture will be real easy to date if you show the heat stamp,bails,liner and rim seam position. Since it may be repainted than you cant go by the type of paint anymore. Im pretty good at dating the M1 helmets!
