M-1 helmet, copied from one of the "original Miller" helmets used in Saving Private Ryan. Repeat, these were not used in the movie. They are replicas! Painted in the configuration of a captain in the 2nd Rangers. The paint is in new condition, they are not aged.
These are done just like the real movie helmet worn by CPT. Miller (Tom Hanks) in "Saving Private Ryan"....front seam swivel bale pots with WWII liners. We have one of his actual helmets from the film to copy.
We cannot guarantee these to be completely free of dings, small cracks, scratches, or rough spots.
All U.S. helmets are assembled using military surplus steel pots and liners. These are 50-70 years old. They are not mint, flawless, stored in a shock-proof-vault-just-for-u. Although we repaint and refurbish them, some evidence of their past use is certain. Small dents, dings or stress cracks are the norm. They are in good to very good shape, but not flawless.
US Helmet "Sizes"
There is only one size! Unlike German helmets and modern day Kevlars, the M-1 M-1C and M-2 helmets and liners come in only one size. The sweatband in the liner adjusts to fit your head via a slide buckle like some baseball caps. Thus, one size fits all. If you get a helmet and it's too tight, you simply need to adjust the sweatband. It's very, very simple.
