    Default Us Vietnam Helmet

    Hello, I want to post my Vietnam Helmet also here for your opinion. It completely belongs together! The soldiers name is/was "Potter". I have also the Army Serial Number, but canīt find something about him! (cover is early 1965)
    But whatīs with the liner camo? Graphiti looks good no?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    im liking that cover and band, reminds me of mine; same style name written on the band. cool helmet man. gotta love that faded peace symbol. the old used looking mitchells cover have more character than the super nice newer looking ones, you know these suckers have been there and seen some action. only of the could talk.

    i would have to say that the graffiti is post NAM war as it looks too fresh Ive seen allot of original NAM graffiti helmets & this just doesn't fit the bill also the guy wouldn't have been given the rank with a big peace sign on his cover.

    this looks the be the patch to the front Specialist (rank) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thanks m1guy i like the cover also it looks amazing so post your helmet?
    Thanks for your opinion Nick but the grafitti looks older in real. But it can be true what you say with the rank and graffiti :/ i've seen also original grafitti covers an this looks like them. But you're the m1 expert here
    So have you any idea why the liner is painted like that? I think this helmet saw Vietnam or what do you think?
    Cheers
