    Nice find, I've seen many lids pass on ebay under similar circumstances (bad pics, obsolete titles). The last months of last year were full of them, but now they seem to have gotten harder to find. I've decided to go to the flea market to make myself feel better

    What was this one posted under?
    cheers mate this was under general Vietnam era militeria so nearly passed me by.

    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.

    cheers Rod

    i cant make out whats stamped on the chin strap as its too blurry, i have thought about trying to bend out the buckle but im worried i'll snap it its not the raised bar type just the flat brass type.
