Pictured is a well used WW I U.S. Army M-1917 Doughboy helmet. The helmet has the original painted insignia of the 33rd Infantry Division, which was a unit in the Army National Guard during world wars one and two. The original liner is intact, as well as the leather chinstrap. The 33rd Division was activated in July of 1917, and went overseas in May of 1918. The division fought at Le Hamel, Meuse-Argonne Offensive, Somme Offensive, and St. Mihiel. The 33rd Division returned to the U.S. in May of 1919, and was inacticated. This helmet is nearly 100 years old.
