Article about: by GIZMO8Z Interesting... I'm kind of embarrassed that I didn't know that. Why didn't they use the traditional red cross medic's insignia? The Japanese did not sign the Geneva Convention, so

    It's impossible to tell if it's really a PTO medic helmet without it in hand. Liner and shell are fine, but the paint, who knows?
    If it's real, that is one extremely rare and expensive helmet. Without rock solid provenance, you'll be taking one hell of a chance. He's been offered $750 already.
