    Question unusual fiber type helmet with red star?

    CHINESE ARMY HELMET - KOREAN WAR ERA - eBay (item 310234398522 end time Jul-23-10 08:53:26 PDT)

    CHINESE ARMY HELMET - COMPLETE
    WITH LINER AND CHINSTRAP :

    FROM THE KOREAN WAR PERIOD.

    IN GOOD CONDITION.



    this looks like a South Korean Export M80 type helmet? the webbing is a little different than usual? the webbing & chin strap look similiar to the Chinese GK80A steel helmet webbing.

    this looks more like a 1980's used helmet

    I have an Great uncle that is a marine, served in Korea, he would tell me stories, how they would use that BIG RED STAR on their helmets, as a target to shoot at, he said it would be a great big bullseye for them to aim at.

    He said the officers wool winter caps were a much better target to shoot at , with a great bid red star pinned to the hat.


    Nice old helmet.
