Hello everybody, Today I found time to do this post-- which I have wanted to do for a while. I have 3 Helmets that I have bought over the last year. The one on the right is a ww2 (as far as I know) and the one on the left is a Vietnam Helmet as far as I know. The middle helmet is the one I'm having a hard time Identifying. what is it? What war? American? I might be wrong about the other 2 so I would definitely appreciate the help. Thank you for looking!
Any markings in the crowns of the liners?also, any numbers stamped inside front of the steel helmets above the brim?The texture of the shells themselves are good indicators of date(roughly)sandy?Corked?Front seam, rear seam?
The PASGT cover would have some something stamped inside too like a DSA number.You can date them from this.
ok , sorry it took so long to respond, the helmets bales are movable (swivel bale). i always wondered why the camo never went on right. thanks for the info.
the markings on the crowns of the liners are: (for the one on the right) 28703 or 28783 i cant tell. unfortunetly the other two liners are too beat up to tell. also, i could not tell or find the stamp on the inside of the helmet themselves, i might not be looking in the right place.
The Woodland camo cover on the helmet to the left in the first photo is for a modern
US 'Fritz' Kevlar lid, as NCA and Battlegear have said. Vietnam covers are of one
piece and have a seam down the middle, without any connecting tabs.
The third picture shows this modern cover incorrectly mounted
to the sweatband !
Also, make sure there are 2 small metal 'snaps' inside these liners for connecting
a leather chinstrap, if you are thinking of buying some. I see that only one
of your liners has them..............
