US VIETAM HELMET 65 bucks?

Article about: I had a complete set of web gear and a couple of Alice rucks until we got hit with the flood of 2006. My helmets made it through ok, but the rest of the stuff was a total loss.

    thanks, I was happy, he had another for 11.95, I asked him why, he told me he put sawdust on it & painted it, wish the wife had let me snag it also, oh well you know how that goes.I didnt have any extra liners anyway, guess I could have bought one on ebay

    hey Finn, man look on ebay, under helmets, he has some more, he must have bought a government surplus thing, , but he has 1or 2 more 9.00 ones & the 11.95 with the sawdust & cork added on , then he has 2 helmets for I think 19.95, no liners, then he has another for 29.95 with the net, I can't remember if it has a liner, but I don't think so, then he said , if you buy the three, one is free & some deal on shipping, I'm out of liners, but I have 3 U.S. helmets now, right now I am on a rip trying to buy a nice ww2 British brodie helmet, don't have one yet & want this one, I had it for 19.99 but somebody drove the bid up, but I'm going after it. oh the u.s. helmets I think are all rear seam, just letting you know. take care. Marty

    hey , I couldnt get through last night, got the British lid, it is sweet, now I have that to add with my g.i. pots & my German helmet, so happy to get a nice turtle. did you get one of those m-1 u.s. pots, I bet he found a surplus sale, because we were still using those in the navy after the army switched to those kevlar lumps. take care Marty.

    the cover on your lid is not Vietnam era but looks to be from a Kevlar helmet which didn't come in to use till the 1980's ??

    I hope not.
    This is New Zealand S.A.S issue.
    I don't know enough about this style helmet but he could've changed the cover.
    But I don't know why he would write on it?
