WW II US M1 Fixed bale helmet

This is a nice US fixed bale M1 helmet. Has original paint and chin straps. The liner is a Firestone with khaki webbing. It is an all around nice early war helmet. There are some red painted letters on the inside of the helmet that I have tried to show in the last photo. Looks like a portion of the soldiers name but I can't make out what it says. Nothing has been retouched or repainted. Please enlarge and zoom on the photos and ask any questions that you might have and I will be more than happy to answer them for you. This would be a great addition to any serious WWII collection. Shipped priority mail in the US which includes full insurance for the purchase price to cover loss or damage in transit to you. International buyers please contact me for a shipping quote to your country.Thanks for looking.
