Costa,

That looks more like a training marking to me than 1st armored. There are a few on here in red, blue, green and yellow. Also looking at those pics im not even 100% sure its a legit marking at all. Looks very clean.

I’m almost positive I have seen the same helmet (or same markings) at Warpath in Fayetteville, NC. I have been trying to find a pic, but no luck yet.

I remember seeing one with the triangle right as you walk into his store on the right. The picture is another one he has, but the symbol is square. Might be a good place to start. I also remember that both of the ones Ed had were clean looking. Nice paint and in good overall condition, but 100% legit.

I don't think the helmet is related to the 1st Armored Division but I don't know what it does represent. There are a bunch of liners with various colored triangles & alpha-numerics in the "Unsung Hero" liner thread. Here's a few. My liner with the name "Stota" belonged to a tank mechanic with a training regiment at Fort Knox. It looks like there was some kind of logic to these markings which may have included the wearer's individual service branch colors.
