    Cool M1 Korean reissued for Vietnam.

    Hi Guy's.

    Here is my latest M1, the steel lid I think is KW due to the paint finish and colour and heatstamp prefix M,I guess it was reissued for VN as the liner and anchor marked chinstaps are from that era.Marked in liner '72, with the head band a later replacement ,dated '76.

    It has some graffiti painted on which i'm not sure is period or not?
    The graffiti looks very old and faded.
    I have seen some "original " VN lid's with markings ,which were clearly put on with a permanent marker( last week )

    Were Motorhead around in the early seventies??
    (i'm more of a Led Zeppelin person myself)

    Your opinions/comments are welcome as ever!

    Cheers

    Thanks, yeah I know what you mean ,the waiting can be a killer!

    19.99 would have been my max budget, so you would have out bid me anyway.....probably by a quid ,which is alway's the way with my luck

    Cheers mate
