USAAF M-4A2 Anti Flak Helmet


Code: H19630

The M4-A2 steel helmet was standardised in 1944 an replaced by the M5 in 1945.  It was fitted with hinged earflaps, covered entirely in a heavy olive green cotton fabric, lined in olive drab nylon and had webbing goggle straps at the back.  It had a simple leather strap and quick release buckle.  

This example has some external fading and staining.  The main lining has suffered from mouse damage resulting in perhaps 40% loss.  Fortunately the earflaps were left intact.  The right earflap is partially unstitched but this is only visible from the underside and not seen if displayed/worn.  The chinstrap has surface wear/cracking and part of the quick release buckle is missing.  Nevertheless this helmet is in reasonable overall condition and displays well.  Priced accordingly.  Stock code H19630.
