I'd like to get some opinions on these helmets. Please pardon my inexperience!
First up is this pot. I would guess its from Vietnam, judging by the finish and the green straps? Seller says that it is from the estate of a soldier who served in Korea and Vietnam. Does anyone know what unit the insignia belongs to?
This one is $40
The next one is a bit more confusing for me? The khaki lining (correct me if I'm wrong!) Indicates world war two. But then some parts are in green? Could it be re worked for later use? Also note the paint drops on the liner- could it have been a repainted helmet for military service? Or repainted by some guy in his garage..
I beleive the cover is Veitnam era, but it does seem a bit clean for its age and if it was used I would expect more wear. Possibly a mismatched helmet/liner/cover?
This one is $80
This one is said to be a Korean war helmet. The lining is khaki, but it looks like there is some green as well. The liner doesnt fit the helmet- so it must be mismatched??? Has markings "A22" and a firestone logo. I'll ask for better photos from the seller.
This last one is out of curiosity... Are the dents in the side of the helmet caused by bullets? Is this helmet ww2? Apparently found in france. Are the stains on the strap blood, or just general age stains?
Thanks so much for the help here guys.
I hope this isn't too tedious, and don't feel like you need to go in to too much detail on these items!
Again, thanks in advance.
