Hi, I bought a whole crate of assorted vietnam and korean war uniforms at a local estate sale a little while back and they didn't know a helmet was at the bottom of the crate. Well it is a FRONT SEAM helmet, which from what i've heard is a sure sign that it is ww2. But there is a problem: Everything else about it screams "Vietnam". The unusually dark vietnam era paint, the liner was dated 67, the vietnam patern camo cover,and it has swivel bale loops. and like i said "it was in a crate with vietnam stuff."
this isnt my helmet but it gives you a visual of the paint color and texture
