USMC M1 Helmet with 2nd Pattern Camo Cover

USMC M1 helmet camo cover
A nice example of the iconic WW2 front seam fixed bale M1 USMC helmet with a great reversible brown/green 2nd pattern camo cover. The helmet still has the original canvas chinstraps, but the Hawley liner is a repro used in the HBO miniseries “The Pacific”. The camo cover is without any post war markings and in excellent condition with signs of battle use.

US Paratrooper Flag Armband

A rare and scarce Airborne Paratrooper Flag Armband in great, used condition. This type of armband was typically used by US Paratroopers for example in North Africa (1942), on the D-Day invasion in Normandy (June 1944) and during Operation Market Garden (September 1944). The armband was fixed to the uniform with a safety pin.
