    Hello,

    As I promised, here is another one of my Iraqi M80.
    Arabic symbol or text on the front of the helmet and letters inside, Unfortunately, I don't know what's that mean. Thank you

    Kind Regards
    Alex

    another fine example alex and nice to see a complete liner with nape strap is the chinstrap a one piece item ,i have a one piece on one of my m80's but its a field modification all my others complete examples have the us style T1 catch ,i have a theory these tan helmets all went through the same paint process from what ive noticed there is always a green underpaint and the liner rivits are always painted black before the final tan coating ,if you have time check out my iraqi helmet collection cheers james

    James, Thank you for your comment. Congratulations on a great collection!!
    I wish to obtain Fedayeen helmet, maybe someday.
    I would like to add one more Iraqi M80 from my collection. Helmet with interesting sign on the front, Iraqi Para? Arabic letters inside. All three helmets were brought back by the same regiment.

    Kind Regards
    Alex
