    Default Another M1 for the U.S. Collection

    Hi all, While at a gun show looking for M2 Ball 30-06 (I did get some.), There was a swapmeet going on also, I found this all Vietnam M1 helmet (I think all correct pieces) for 40$. I tried to get a picture of the stamp on the inside of the rim, but failed but the stamp is: 499A. Under the layer of paint is red coat of paint and under that is a green coat. George A
