The cover sure looked like it had been in Vietnam with the jungle rot on the edge but it and the helmet were lightly used, maybe by somebody who didn't wear it much.
Here are the pics:

There was one other picture but it was almost the exact same as this and was too big and I did not want to mess with resizing it.

In about half the pictures of the 505th in Vietnam (when the side of the helmet is visible) they do NOT have panthers marked on them. I am not sure if only 1 battalions used the marking or what.
There are 505th helmets with wings in red, blue, orange, white, and black, I know what meaning they have.
The 508th also marked their helmets, I have seen one that is clearly a red devil, the others are much larger and almost look like red hearts.

Pictures of 505th Helmets marked with panthers (remember that there are a lot of pictures from albums of the 505th in Vietnam showing soldiers that do NOT have panthers on their helmets.):

Edit: this one got really compressed, I'll try to find the bigger one, sorry.
