Looks to be a wicker woven type NVA/VC sun helmet with rain proof cover.This has some good age to it and appears authentic.
These are faked as well.
I would get as much info on the vet,unit he was in,time in country etc.

I'd also invite you to post this on our sister Forum, the World Militaria Forum. It is run by the same friendly folks you find on here and is an excellent item for that website.
Thanks for posting this excellent item.

looks similar to this museum piece
Gonna looks similar to any museum piece Haha.
Even though they were hand made they were pretty uniform, only usual differences are in how tight the weave is, and if the cover is black plastic or parachute silk.
The earlier they are the shallower the angle usually is, but this is not a hard fast rule. Viet Minh ones are usually around a 30 degree angle and Viet cong usually were closer to a 45. Of course there werent out there with a protractor measuring it but just something I noticed.
