    There is no absolute correlation between lot number and branch of service. Photos may help though.

    Please refer to this post, which needs to be posted about 10 times a week across various fora now it seems...

    Someone needs to pin the statement,

    Lot numbers have nothing to do with service branch.

    Also a "batch" is what you call it when mom bakes cookies.

    You need to post photos up of both sides of the helmet, not just the left side.

    Busman,

    There is a book out there (just updated in Aug 7th edition) by Brian Ice that has a fairly comprehensive list. It's only $25.

    I plan on getting it myself in the next few weeks.
