Absolutely gorgeous Second Division Engineer WWI Helmet. Most importantly one that nobody could possibly look at and question. Complete with liner and chinstrap this is out of my collection. The 2nd Division was an important unit that was put together specifically for WWI and included the 5th and 6th Marine Regiments and was twice commanded my marine Corps generals. This is the only time in our history that Marine Corps generals commanded Army divisions. The division was absolutely in the middle of it and saw action at the Battle of Belleau Wood the Château-Thierry campaign which finally helped break the 4 year stalemate, and scored victories at Soissons and Blanc Mont and participated in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. A hell of a lot of fighting for well under a year of front line service. Terrific helmet would be a fine addition to any relevant collection.
