    Default Vietcong Helmet?

    Hi everyone,

    A friend bought this one in his vacations as an original vietnam war item. As I know almost nothing about it I decided to post it here to see some opinions about it and learn a little more. Thanks in advance.

    the badge has the National Liberation Front flag colors red on top and blue on the bottom

    the NLF is the VC

    these Sun helmets are still in use today and the badge was most likely added to sell to tourists as a souvenir from VN

    Interesting. How can we know if it is war period or if the badge was added later? Any clue?

    Period helmets have painted flat insignias most of the time and are a little different shape and always in used condition I have not seen a wartime one that was mint ever
