    I have this old WWI M1917A1 helmet that was my great grandpa's who I'm pretty sure was a Runner for the 1st Division Military Police. I thought I would share it with you :D I do not know much about it although I am aware it has no liner and I believe the heat stamp is "7C199"

    Excellent looking helmet there, I've never seen the Big Red One on such an early period pot... And a police helmet, at that! Truly interesting, and quite uncommon.
