    Still a good starter helmet.
    Airborne helmet with the insignia are very very rare and collector go crasy for them and spent top dollars.
    A 502 airborne helmet sold for 70000$ at auction last year.

    Well i guess thats why it was sold to me for twenty dollars hahahaha but do you think the paint was put on during the korean war or after it.
