    Hi,
    usualy the luggs on the helmet like that donate an M16, but from that angle they look to far back and to high on the helmet.
    Also i cant see a rear hole for the liner clip, can you put more pics on.

    Absolutely right. I belief the lugs from the M16/17/18 remained after the war in large quantities and were used by this helmet for ventilation.
