    The OD covers are uncommon, I don't like how the helmet rim is stainless steel, yet the rim is not at the front. Even if that didn't bother me, still not worth close to that.

    I'm glad you started this thread Rudderes as I was going to do the same.
    I see generally that people seem to be pushing the price of Vietnam era stuff. Maybe the price of ww2 items has finally gone beyond the means of the ordinary collector?
    There is certainly something strange going on out there in collectorland.
    In this case possibly a reasonably rare OD cover, made rarer with a Marine Corps stamp? Marine stamped mitch covers have leapt in price recently. Crazy

    PS, I've got one of those, 200.00 to you mate!

    Dang, these prices fluctuate like mad. Mitchell covers were around 10-15GBP last week when I was looking.

    I think it's just because it's a Marine issue one. Easy to fake the tags though, and in by crystal ball I see a whole flood of "genuine" ones on the bay soon.............................................. ...........................

    well if it all hangs on the OD cover then we will be here allnight,yes I know they existed period pics show that in korea,but these were never put through the Quarter Masters Corp or the Defence Supply Agency,so they were never standard US kit,but these covers are on ebay for 20 B.I.N so is it purely that stamp mark?because the rest of the helmet has raised more issues with me than the wife......Jake.

    The issue I did notice is that it has the green painted buckle fastenings and black anchor stamped buckles, just like the Marine lid I posted a few days ago..........
