THE AMERICAN SOLDIER OF WWII

M1 helmet with fixed bale and green hardware.
Original battle damaged 'winter white wash' M1 helmet with fixed bales.  Found by a young boy after the battle where 10th Mountain was fighting in Bologna, Italy.  Shrapnel damage penetrating the steel shell and liner.  I believe the white paint is the type of white wash used for tanks.  Completely untouched original.
First Special Service Force (FSSF) enlisted soldiers uniform complete with original French made FSSF braid. 
1943 Springfield M1 Garand
