    if the liner has a grommet hole on the front its Korean war if there no grommet hole its early Vietnam its not unusual for the liner head band (which buy the way looks fine ) to be attached this way they even did it during WW2. the cover is fine but not sure of date i would need to see the stamp on the inside to determine that as for the shell it may stand a good chance of being a reissued WW2 version but again with the cover on it i cant tell but from those pic's it looks to be fine apart from the chin strap missing.
