    Default What do I have?

    Any help would be much appreciated....not sure what year this is- I know nothing about helmets, I just found this and need some info about it and thought you guys could help me out. Can't really make out the print on the straps, but I do notice the number 59? There's a stamp in the crown of the liner I guess that reads US 7. and a stamp inside the helmet itself towards the front that reads 2213.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    It is a Vietnam War era American M1 helmet. This one looks later to me, perhaps 70's?

    It is worth maybe $30 or so. That's what the shop near me sells them for.

    Best regards,

    Awesome- thanks for your help Not too bad for only paying $3 for it at a thrift store!

    Does that star mean anything or did somebody else draw that on there after the fact?

    It is most likely a recent addition.

    Thanks guys- looks like one of the stamps reads: DSA100-69-C4774

    So I'm assuming this is from 69 then from what I've been reading on here?

    yep! 1969.

    Now all you need is a Mitchell pattern camo cover and you got yourself a nice representative Vietnam helmet.
