    Hi zwerge,
    I think that it might be an unissued helmet as it is dated 83, and that is at the end of the time for that type of helmet as Kavlar came in then.

    You can see by the liner, chinstraps and the helmet cover that it is a US M1 helmet from the Vietnam era. - Its quite nice. Lucky you

    the Woodland camo cover is also 1980's and matches the Woodland camo BDU's of the same time period.

    Wolfman you beat me Not vietnam. There was a huge surplus in the 80's.

    It is a paratrooper helmet inner shell from the 80's that appears to match the steel pot but without the camo cover on it i can not tell.
