    Hi Guys.

    Here is an M1 veitnam era ,from my collection,this particular lid,looks like it never saw no jungle,but it is a good representation of what the Gi's lid would have looked like before hitting the boonies.

    Enjoy Wink

    Yeah Mate ,I know what you mean,but they are so darned expensive ( and potentially faked) so I'm wary of graffitied covers...thanks again Mate Wink

    The sweatband is POST Vietnam war era. The style of writting is typical of the 80's. 1971 was the first year the DSA was printed on the outside of the sweatband.

    Nice helmet
