Vietnam War M1 ?

Article about: Hi, Always wanted a legit Vietnam War M1. Is this a legit one - the liner strap is from 1969 but the rest is unmarked. Thanks in advance.

    As predicted nearly all Ingersoll shells carry Anchor stamped chinstraps,both were produced between 65-67 when the logo was dropped,but continued to be made until the early 70's.

    I think liner and shell are correct for a ca. 1967-68 era helmet, but it's safe to assume the cover will be 1970's-early 1980's dated unless you're lucky. However, original 1960's dated Mitchell covers in a matching condition are easy to find and not very expensive. A dated elastic helmet band may be a bit more expensive though.

    Thank you guys for the help.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Look for the 1969 Duck Pattern ERDL stamp below. Also printed in a somewhat different ink/paint that sits on the fabric surface rather than absorbed into the fabric such as the example below. That particular surface stamp is difficult to photograph.

    Here it is.
    Shell has single marking, liner has dome marking along with suspension marking. The cover has a trace of a stamp - looks like it washed out over time.

    Thanks !

    The liner could be dated on the webbing near one of the temples. Shell is indeed correct as stated above. You could think of getting a Mitchell-pattern cover, these are easy to find and the type used during the whole Vietnam-war.
