    michael nick is spot on locating the date stamp for you ,but please bear in mind this is only the contract issue date , the helmet could have been manufactured anything up to ten years after this date , nick i think your right the cover looks quite tight over the front rim giving a false outline regards james

    jake the paratrooper version is basically the same chinstrap configuration but with a simple alteration which includes a high density foam neck protector pad and chin strap side sections these can be added to any ground troop pasgt ,hope this helps james

    Testing of the PASGT was done in 1980 and 1981, then the first small contract were let in 1980, 1981, and 1983. In 1983 full production went into effect and millions were produced. 1983 is not an especially hard year to find, but I have searched high and low for one earlier than that and haven't found one. The rare one in 1983 is made by Gibralter.

    The really, really rare versions are dated 1980 or 1981: Geonautics, PACA, and Brunswick Inc - none of which returned for the full contracts later. Also Aqua-Aire.

    I've (hopefully) attached a sheet talking about PASGT contracts which is based on the information in Reynosa's PASGT book. I find it useful when looking for dates.

    By the way, dates can also be found molded into the crown of the helmet.
