United States Army M1 steel helmet shell and liner. The shell features swivel strap bales and a seam at the rear, metal clasps attaching the straps to the shell, and a T1-style release hook, all of which identify it as post-World War II, likely circa the Korean War. The shell bears the painted insignia of the 2nd Ranger Battalion, an orange horizontal diamond with a black numeral "2", on the back. The shell is also marked "U.S. CPR" within, and is dented at the crown. The liner, also of post-war manufacture, bears the stamp of the Capac Manufacturing Company within, as well as the inscription "WALL" in black ink. The liner shows some chipping and splitting at the rim, and appears to have been repainted. The webbing and chin straps are all intact, although the leather chin strap is missing, else very good.
