Thank you for all of the input and detective work :)

 

I've taken some more photos of the front. I must say, when the light hits it just right it sure looks like there used to be a Major's insignia there.

I definitely believe that there was either a Major or Lt. Col Insignia on this helmet, or maybe both. Thanks for the extra pictures.

I would say it probably had an oak leaf attached to the front. I dont see the 34th insignia but I believe the area was altered by heat when the rank was applied. If the helmet did belong to one of the WP Raymonds it is interesting. I believe the Raymond family has the largest lineage of all the graduates. I served with and I am a good friend of one of the family members that graduated in 1979. Just google West Point Raymond lineage and you will see the legacy. Regards
