    I seem to remember some of the troops involved in the Ceaușescu execution were wearing these lids!..

    So the infantry m73 is easy to date as the stamping is on the exterior rear edge and shows 1984 year of manufacture and also what must be a batch code ? maybe ,but how to tell on the para ,all this info has been trimmed away Hmm Does anybody know where to look ,perhaps its more liner based now to give clue'sClick image for larger version.

    Hi James,

    Another nice acquisition. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, that is a very nice collection of late 20th century militaria that you are gathering. One day that will be quite an important reference source. keep up the good work.

    Cheers,
    Steve.
