    Hello James,

    Going by the large padded earpads, the helmet looks to be an APH-6A, circa 1968. If it has a three piece styrene energy absorbing liner inside, that's what it is. If it has a two piece liner, it's an APH-6D, 1969 onward. The 6B and 6C were dual visor models.

    Cheers, Willie.

    No worries, James. By the large earpads, it would definitely be an APH-6A. The APH-6D had much smaller, plastic/vinyl earcup covers and the inside foam liner was divided into two equal halves as opposed to the three piece one which your helmet would most likely have. Definitely Vietnam era.

    I'm tidying up an excess to requirements APH-6D at the moment; getting it ready to swap for a piece of an aeroplane.

    Cheers, Willie.
