    Default Vietnam period U.S. Navy M1 helmet

    I have here what I believe to be a U.S. Navy M1 produced by ingersol the stamp number being 1 0241 (correct me if I'm wrong). The colour looks white on the pics but it is a pale blue colour. The liner is an M58 liner produced by marmac see liner stamp markings. The liner and pot are Vietnam period pieces. At the moment it has a late Korean to early Vietnam helmet cover over it with a repro rubber helmet band. I have a couple of more Vietnam helmets to put up soon. Thanks for looking guys.

    Default Vietnam era navy used helmet

    The grey painted helmets were used by the coastal patrol swift boats like this sailor in the photo in Vietnam.
