gazumped again humbug...........well done anyway Nick........Jake.
sorry mate just stumbled on it at the last minute no time to get any real info as to whether anyone else here was going for it.
It maybe wasn’t that badly listed if you were looking for a Vietnam m1, I look for ww2 stuff.
Vietnam 1969 Us Army M1 Helmet And Liner.
Im to slow at typing lol
Its all cool here at WRF its the way it goes.i downloaded the pics and zoomed in and saw it was fixed loop however i wasn't overwhelmed by the chinstraps or paint....but may be fine in the end,as you say its bound to happen bidding against each other sooner or later,thats a part of life......enjoy your new prize........Jake.
well its turned up & i think its £31 well spent its not in the best of condition repainted, big crack & god knows what happened to the chin strap buckle but its in solid condition & has lots of character
Nice buy nick,at least the bales are intact,looks like big momma sat on that buckle.......Jake.
she wont win no beauty contest but she's just the way i like them well used with plenty of character
It looks fine Nick, can you make out what it says on the chin strap.
It must have took a bit of force to bend that buckle like that, are you going to have a shot at straightening it.
Where can you pick up a fixed bail with both its chin straps for that kinda money these days, you did fine. Is it raised bar buckle.
