    Interesting side V, probably for armoured units. Not to sure if its common for the reflective bands being on the back though.

    Nice looking Mitchell,the V looks to be ,24th Infantry division marked.
    The lid has post '72 chinstraps,so I am guessing a late 70's issue lid,I would not mind seeing more details shots of the lid itself,to ID it further.
    The cat's eyes were not used until the 80's ,so I am guessing someone attached them a lot later in the covers life,these Mitchell covers were used up to the late 70's,then were replaced by the ERDL Woodland pattern,with the cat eye helmet custom cover like it a lot Wink
