    Yep wore one just like this in the early 80's but, believe it or not we were still using ERDL and the occasional Mitchell covers. The Marines never threw anything away back then. In 1985 I was issued a 68 dated poncho liner and an M16A1 made by Hydra-Matic, and both were new. I still have the poncho liner.
    Many thanks for your comments , I am surprised by the issue of outdated equipment, but it makes perfect sense and truly semper fi

    Nice 80s lid. I got to get me one of these. I have WWII through VN but not a complete 80s set up.

    Opex, Very nice helmet. Although very common I do like collecting them. The wife thinks I'm nuts for having too many of them.

    Steve if your referring to the heatstamp exposed,that seems to be the regular thing,even some of the bigger dealers are at it,I guess its all down to personal opinion,it shouldn't be done but over in the uk there are a lot of euro clone lids with US liners added so at least this way you can be sure of what you are actually getting.
    With Regards Jake.

    It doesnt bother me that much. Nobody is going to see it during display.
    Also it makes it easier to see the heat lot number.

    Good point it does annoy me, but that's the way it came,I have considered painting over this bare patch but cannot find a decent paint match.
