    Default New M1 + Some vietnam stuff :)

    Hey,

    This just came in the post today.
    I got it all for 30.

    The liner had a crack (witch it did not have when i paied the guy, he packed all the straps and bags inside the helmet, and the straps puched up and destroyed it. Its sad)

    I'm thinking the liner is ww2, and not really sure about the shell? And the rest of it i am almost 100% that it is US from the Vietnam era, its all stamped US and have a date between 1959 and 1965.

    Even tough the liner has snapped (i'm still crying :P) i think its pretty good for 30.

    You can see the pictures! Enjoy!
