    I want to show you this late Vietnam M1 helmet.

    The well-preserved low dome shell comes from the Parish Division of the Dana Corporation and is painted in Munsell 10Y 3/3. Sand texture.

    Inside is the typical four-digit number. These shells were made between 1968 and 1970.

    The chinstrap has no markings and is likely from the end of the 1960s. North & Judd Mfg. Co. produced such metal parts from 1967 to around 1972.

    Why refurbished? The shell looks to me like the original factory color.
    She just got a new chin strap.
