    Hey, I found an M1 Helmet with camo and post WWII liner. ($50)
    The M1 is front seam schulter helmet, swivel bale. (Excuse my spelling of schulter, if wrong)

    The camo, I am little puzzled on. It seams more faded then the other one i got, and seams to be different pattern. If you can please help me date these camo's for the m1.


    Thanks

    hiya the first camo cover looks to be dated 1967 & the second one is dated 1973 all in all some very nice pick ups & all for a good price especially the M-1 helmet

    should also say the 67 dated one looks to be made of twill fabric which are not that common

    Yeh I was going to suggest early Vietnam for these. I have seen pics of Aussie soldiers who "acquired" these covers during the Vietnam war. Though not many as these were not on General issue to our boys. Just something a Digger would have swapped his Slouch hat for wiht a GI.

    Can you believe that in the early 90's I was offer a M16 for my Slouch hat!
