I remember my brother in gradeschool c.1972 getting an "army navy surplus" US rucksack which he promptly magic-markered a big maltese cross on.

It was a cool design back then for kids and nothing to do with bikers or evil intent!  :)

 

So so very cool!  Also cross-collectable as Vietnam era Americana.  So glad you didn't spray paint it green as a kid!!!

I agree with the biker angle. It looks like it has "Hell Movers" written on the front brim, which definitely sounds like some kind of biker group.

While it is a somewhat esoteric field of military collecting these type items do have significant value.

 

As is, this helmets value is roughly equal to a Plain Jane FB in nice condition.

 

If you remove the paint you will have a stripped Plain Jane helmet worth half that amount.
