Guys I want to show you my small VN war infantry flak vests collection. They are at near mint condition. From left to right 1) M1952A Size M fragmentation vest was used in early Vietnam war period 1965 -1968 2) In the middle: Fragmentation Vest with 3/4 collar, Size M. Dated 1969 was used from 1969 until the 1973, Mid war period and late war period 3) M69 flak vest with Velcro 1970 dated. S Size. the only vest which was called correct "m69"!! previous model called m69 by collectors is mistaken you need to know that. M69 with Velcro was used from the 1970 till 1973 by the us army and till 1975 by the ARVN.
In Vietnam war all mentioned vests above were used without time frame, I write time periods to make you imagine from what year period which vest came. For example M1952A an early one, could be seen at late war period used...with other late war or mid war vests.
Thanks for attention
