    What type of helmet is this? It seems like a Vietnam era helmet to me? What does MVl on the bottom of the liner mean? Is this original? Somebody told me that this is a paratrooper helmet.

    Is the seam on the helmet at the front or the back of the helmet. Because the lid looks a lot older than the liner.

    The seam is at the back of the helmet rim.

    yeah i would say a very well used Vietnam issue helmet it has the anchor stamp on the chinstrap buckle. the liner does seem to be in better condition then the shell & has the leather sweatband missing so maybe they weren't originally together & the extra chinstrap meant it would have been used by the air cav.
