I purchased this M1 online which was described as a Vietnam era helmet.    It arrived in a camo cover, which I removed and found the steel pot to be a front seam swivel bail, painted in a bright green.   I decided to remove the paint and found a grey / white stripe around the brim of the helmet and the rear of the helmet is painted the same color.   Did this denote it was worn by a Navy driver?   The liner is Korean era and is covered in markings.
