    Default Is this a Korean War cover?

    Looking online and found this one interesting. It's front seam and has a Firestone liner, but also this odd plain od green cover on it. I've seen burlap covers and this color on Korean helmets so I knew it looked firmiliar. I thought the spots were rust from the helmet, but the helmet is relatively clean so your guess is as good as mine on that. Also is a yellow bar which is 2nd Lt color but it looks far too big however it's sort of aged with the rest of the helmet. Click image for larger version.

    They were used in early Vietnam.

    They were used in Korea, too.

    Ya I know, I was just trying to point out that they still used them in VN. I should have been more clear.

    It is hard to tell when they are made because they are not marked.

    These covers are difficult to date and therefore do not get the respect they deserve. The last example I personally handled was no later than mid fifties and there was anecdotal evidence to support that. If they were date stamped I believe they would get much more respect (IMO).

    I don't see any foliage slits isn't this the rare Korea version?
