    Jurgen, no scratches or holes, maybe the guy had a head wound but still wore the helmet, and rh1941, the photo's make it look like there are medal eyelets but there are none,it's hard to see but the string is discolored from blood also, i'm having trouble downloading more photo's, it's saying my upload has too many kb's for the file, can anybody help?

    Hi bowlin,
    Interesting combat veteran. I have a very similar helmet, it's a NS64. I'm also in the Pittsburgh area.
