M1-C Jump Helmet: this helmet is typical of a late war (1945) paratrooper helmet. Helmet Shell is rear-seam, and the cotton webbing inside the liner is khaki. The helmet shell chinstraps are also khaki. The liner leather chinstrap is present and intact. The M1-C paratrooper helmet would probably be more appropriate for a late-war paratrooper display (for example 17th Airborne Division circa Operation Varsity in Spring 1945), however because most collectors cannot afford early original M2 paratrooper helmets it is common for Airborne collectors to display these original late-war helmets with mid-war jackets or Normandy displays, rather than displaying reproduction helmets. The shell has heat number 164B and the liner, that was once painted white for Military Police, is maker marked by Firestone. Both helmet and liner have their original paratrooper chin strap systems present.
