U.S.A.A.F. M-5 Anti Flak Helmet

Dark olive drab painted manganese steel helmet with long pointed hinged earflaps and an adjustable internal harness. The helmet has a \'flocked\' finish - a coating similar to cotton lint which helped to prevent the wearer\'s skin from freezing to the metal at high altitudes where temperatures are extremely low. It is fitted with a chamois backed leather chin strap having a quick release buckle for easy removal. Overall condition is quite good but there is surface corrosion over most of the helmet. The liner and chinstrap are excellent. Stock code H15341.
