    That was my thought exactly. If its real I got a good bargain, even if it is KW era.
    I have a feeling that it is authentic.

    The pictures suck, but I think it is no good from those posted. Good luck at any rate.

    What makes you think it is not authentic?
    The pics sure are not enough to say for sure but the pattern looks good to me.


    Once I get it I will post pics so we can say for sure either way.
    I am guessing it is authentic based on:
    1. The listing title was not real good: Marine corps helmet with camo cover
    Not the best listing title so the guy is likely not into militaria.
    2. The sellers other items and sold items are not militaria.
    3. The chin straps are sewn on (not a huge thing but a positive).

    Oh, and BTW, if it is authentic it could very well be a first pattern cover and that would be a true score.

    Here is his description:
    Marine corps helmet.Korean era.Helmet in very good condition,Liner also but missing sweat band and chin strap. Helmet straps are in good condition. Rear seam. camo cover in poor condition,torn in the rim area,faded and weakened with age.

    The seller had it up for $75 so I asked if he would make it the buy it now price and he did.
    To be honest I was surprised.
    Thank you for all the nice comments.
    I cant wait to post more pics so we can say for sure either way.
