These squadron marked Marine Corps helmets can be pretty elusive items. I thought this one was pretty slick. I do have an extra hose for the mask, but could use the valve. If anyone has a spare please shoot me a PM. Many thanks.

Sorry I can't help with the O2 valve, but that is a really nice helmet!!

Was this helmet used on the AV-8B Harriers?

The time line points to Harriers. I also found a photo of a VMA 331 Harrier in flight, and if you zoom in the helmet looks like it could be this design.
