Helping Information on a heat stamp on a McCord M1 Helmet.
I was wondering if anyone would know the approximately the date of a McCord front seam, swivel bail helmet with a heat stamp of 861H (unless I read it upside down and it is H198)?
The book I ordered is taking a while to arrive. Also would the liner be any paticular manufacturer(s) for this helmet or anyone of the manufacturers?

861 looks to be from about March of 1944. 198 would be too early as it gives a date of approx June 1942
The liners could be from any of the manufacturers.
