got the fixed bail, front seam helmet years ago. It's one coat of paint is smooth and glossy. Don't think it ever had chin straps as the bails paint is unworn. The back has major stress cracks. I'm thinking it's a reject

Robert...further to my email...over the years I've had a couple of M1s with a similar glossy olive finish. I've always assumed they were "spiffed up" garrison helmets?

this one has no wear marks or scatchs. Don't think it was ever used
