    I think it is a very nice helmet.
    I have a couple in my collection and I think they are under-rated.
    These covers were used during the Vietnam War along with Mitchell pattern covers.
    One of my helmets like this is a WWII Fixed bail/loop with a WWII liner and a 53' cover.
    The other one has a later swivel loop and WWII liner and a 53' cover.
    You can really see any combo of earlier or later helmet with a 53' cover.

    Hello, I think a little late for the Korean War.
    The USMC cover is manufactured by BLUE ANCHOR OVERALL Co. Inc.
    I think April 29, 1953 is the contract date, not the production date.
    Would fit so well on a Vietnam display.
    Yes agreed
