    on one helmet you said it has Vietnam straps sewn on which would be incorrect in Vietnam they were attached with metal clips. you may be referring to the od#7 I think straps that were sewn on in late WW2. I'd like to see some pictures of the straps where they connect to the bales please.

    I think those are late WW2. I also see there is a net on the helmet since it has a vietnam liner it was probably re used in the 60's/70's so you should add mitchell cover (they are pretty cheap) since that was standard issue after WW2 and Korea these nets were not used. or you could switch out the liner with a ww2 one whatever you want.

    I think it might be original WW2 paint but M1's had a very long service life almost 50 years so they were repainted alot if this one has its only been once.
