    Default grabbed a rear seam helmet cheap

    I got a rear seam U.S. steel pot today, even had old raggedy straps on it, not rusty , just a little in spots, but for $9.00 I can't complain, now I have somewhere for my viet nam mp liner to go, yeah I know it don't mean much , but for the price I can't complain. it had the # 18031 stamped in front, I'm no expert & don't know what the # signifies, but just glad to have a pot to put my liner in, yes I know I don't have pic's.

    the best field marshal EVER, he is definately in the top 5 army leaders in history. my favorites were, Crazy Horse take that custer LOL, R.e. Lee, stonewall Jackson, Rommel & well can think of a few more, but that is the top of my list.well I gotta give Patton some credit too.

    Does it have a sewn-on chinstrap or one that is affixed via a metal clip? Either way....$9 is a VERY good deal! Well done!!

    sorry been out of town, it does have a kind of sandy texture, but I think he painted it is a wierd light off green, inside it is dark green & rusty, I did switch it out with my para liner & put my nam cammo cover on it, since he painted it, when the army/navy store gets more o. d. green paint in, I guess I will re-paint it. yeah I know I have no way to put pic's on here. Bravo, yeah man it has the slanted slide on straps, they look old & faded, guess they are nam or later.
