NEW CHIN STRAP FOR M1 COMBAT HELMET US ARMY USMC Picture(s) and Description:

NEW

This auction is for ONE new, never-issued two-piece M1 helmet replacement chinstrap. It is genuine US government issue, NOT a reproduction or copy. This strap was produced in the US between 1965 and 1972 by North and Judd Mfg. Co. in New Britain, Connecticut. It is OD#7 (olive green) cotton webbing and comes with a FLAT BLACK-OXIDE metal finish with crimp-on tabs. It has the T1 "ball and hook" release and is correct for the late WWII through post-Vietnam period. Strap is 16 inches long when connected. These type straps were used by US Forces from November 1944 until about 1982. They began to be replaced about 1980 by a nylon/cotton split-chin hook-in strap that didn't require pliers for installation. Do not confuse these with the shiny thin-metal "NATO" chinstraps sold elsewhere on eBay. They look very similar but if the metal parts are shiny, they're not US made. Let me know if you'd like a strap with an anchor. Unless you tell me otherwise, at checkout or when you pay, I will ship one without the anchor . These two types of straps are identical except for the anchor stamping*. You are bidding on ONE chinstrap of your choice, NOT TWO. Boxes are shown for reference only and are NOT included. Shipping by first class mail is FREE in the US including delivery confirmation. Delivery typically in 2 - 4 days. You'll pay exactly what you bid. Insurance not necessary. Shipping to anywhere else is $2. In the event of loss outside the US we will provide proof of mailing only. *Apparently, the anchor logo was first used in the mid-sixties and was discontinued when the manufacturer, North and Judd, was acquired by Gulf and Western Industries in 1967. Chinstraps produced after 1967 had NO anchor.
