    Picked up today, 1985 dated made by NP Coventry, good condition and it came with both MTP and DPM covers, with the latter being obviously an earlier type, even for DPM covers I think.

    I wanted as early an example as I could find so was glad to get this local to me.

    It seems from the list I posted that the dpm cover would date to about the same year, 1985, as the helmet

    I am sure plenty were, but me at age 15 was not one of them, though I was very interested, just had no money.

    It amazes me that the MkVI can be picked up for so little, this one on ebay is 15 including cover for an early smooth sheel type dated 1986, not mint but pretty good condition.
