    Very nice Marty,the age and wear to the burlap seems consistent to the paint loss,and typical field brushed repaint to shell and liner,however the only concern is the chinstraps they appear to be a later addition unless the whole set was done post Korea maybe some period during Vietnam,other than that a great displaying Helmet and talking piece,well done Bud and thanks for sharing................
    With Regards Jake.

    I one concern I had was the chinstrap and no I did not do any research before hand( tunnel vision). The metal chinstrap clips were green in the Korean War era then went to black. Well either the set is oringial to one other or the set has been together for a long time.
