    Hi Ade thanks for looking this helmet has been on my want list for a long time. Chris I wish it worked that fast all the time. I've seen the orange stamp on other items what's it for. Thanks for looking Rich A glad you like it . Rene was just looking at your hamlets very nice . Jake and Brad thanks for looking . Gel65 they are getting harder to find. Gary
    I have a few items with the Orange marking.
    I was told that the equipment was used post war by france and given back to the US .I guess the marking was to prove it was given back.

    Not sure if that is right I have some NOS equipment with similar stamps, I think it is an acceptance (quality control) stamp of some sort, on electronics.

    I found a M227 years ago in a barn just outside of Sainte mere du mont Normandy.
    Everything Had that orange stamp The bag the lamp and the other parts for it.
    One of the local collector told me this was from the French military that used US equipment
