"Big Red One" 1st Infantry Division Captain's M1 helmet with fixed bales. Original wartime applied markings, an identical painted helmet for a 1st Division Lieutenant resides on display at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. This very special helmet resided in a private collection for over 30 years before we were able to acquire it.

Original battle damaged 'winter white wash' M1 helmet with fixed bales. Found by a young boy after the battle where U.S. Army 10th Mountain was fighting in Bologna, Italy. There is shrapnel damage penetrating the steel shell and liner. We believe the white paint is the type of white wash used for tanks. Completely untouched and original.
