    I have been watching this helmet over at USMF. An absolutely stunning helmet I am proud to see that you won this one. I know you took a large gamble but this one truly paid off. The only way you could top this one is to find another, but this may be the only one around. if there is another one out there I would love to have it in my collection. Again a GREAT FIND!!!! WOW!!!!!

    This helmet to those do not know is a very rare helmet and to those in the Vietnam helmet collecting world is a helmet to be had for the collection. A fine example to be had.

    Thank you for you kind comments.

    To tank destroyer:
    Yes I was really lucky to get this one.
    You said " this may be the only one around."
    I have never seen one like it.

    I have to agree it is very hard to tell. This one appears to be an un-issued WWII helmet (judging by the minty straps), painted but not used? very lightly used? by the ARVN. Nice helmet though!
    Best regards,

    I dont really understand why people say that it is hard to tell whether it is original.
    Collectors look at painted WWII, Korean War and TR helmets and Camo helmets all the time and decide whether they are original.
    No difference here.
    Also the straps are not mint.
    They just look that way from the photos.
    Frankly this one is a "one looker" in hand.

    OH and BTW, I did not post it for authentication as I am confident about it.
    I merely posted the helmet to share.
    Hope you enjoy it.
