  1. Thank you very much to all .. I left the helmet! Now, with calm I search for an another one Italian front
  2. Can I quickly buy this Vietnam M1? Please I need of a quickly answer... I have only these photos and this is the description that the seller writes: (sorry for bad traslation...) "...shell M1951: swivel hooks - rear edge cover joint, punched on the front 'M-51A' (Mc Cord production 1951-1958), external color and inside ORIGINAL 95% sanded drab olives. There are signs of time and use, but no major rust and the only dent is what you see at the top of the dome. Chinstrap T1 with the fittings to the anodized black 'clip' shell rings, like the accessories for closing the subject. Liner M1955 without front hole Westinghouse production (marked W in the circle and 5 - is not a Micarta !!!), external color 100% and without any flaw in the fiber, complete with original headband and neckband. The brands on the neckband are not read, the headband is well marked 'MIL - B - 1953A - DA - 36 243 - QM (CTM) - 4748 - E - 60 MFG 1755 SB' (production 1959-60) and there is the name of the owner 'PFC PJ Hugenbaugh Pioneers USMC' (see photo). Rest in original brown leather with the rivet marked 'DOT', unfortunately broken and with a piece of missing leather (see photo)..." Price: 190 euros Thanks in advanced
  3. Misery! Bad day... Now I look better and I see that number 1 is different from others... yes now I think it was a number 4. Thanks Justin I payed 30 euro for a fake cover. I lost a cover, but the seller definitely lost a customer who could buy a lot more. But thank you very much to you partisan
  4. Hi, I have this cover (1971 dated), about Vietnam era. It has a lo of graffiti hanmade and I have some doubs abouts its originality. What do you think about? They are very shade, but this is not sufficient to say they are same era... and... I see on the list of months GIU is missed... can be a reason? Thank you very much in advanced and excuse again my poor english (sorry).
  5. Thanks for the advice olivier , but I came late, sin delivers me so much. Do you have anything to point out to me? I.F
  6. Hi, in my searching for a M1 USMC ww2 cover I found this one. I like it, but I'm not so expert to know if it is an original ww2 cover or a post war cover or an aged good repro... Please give me an help, I know that the EGA were applied after the war (sure?) but is the cover of the ww2 period? Thank you in advanced for your gentle help. Partisan

  13. Thanks for answer, but this flight helmet was used in Vietnam war? Thanks I.F.
  14. Hi, can you tell me exactly what helmet is it? Is it an APH-5 or is it a SPH-4 or again an HGU? Thanks I.F.
  15. This helmet M1 Schluter was found in a warehouse in Italy. He had two cartonboard, one inside the liner and on top of the shell. Do you think these are the original cartons positioned from the factory? If they are original can increase the value of the helmet, or can I throw it away? Thanks Italian front
  16. Hi, what do you think about this M1 Vietnam era, I like it very much but before buy it I need your opinion... The liner is marked 63 (If I read well) and cover 67, there aren't other date.. Thanks in advanced I.F.
  17. Hi, I'm considering buying this helmet, but I have some doubts. It has a production numer 372, but it mount a OD 7 chinstrap. I know that OD7 chinstraps was mounted after the ww2, but I also know that Shlueter mounted od7 chinstrap since late 1943 - early 1944 and from the photos that seller sent me, I think this is an M1 Shlueter helmet. I need your opinion before buy, it is in mint conditions and nominative (I posted info about the soldier). Thank you very much in advanced Italian Front
  18. Thank you guys, very interesting informations italianfront
  19. Thanks, but now I have a question: after 1958 they replaced every green metal hook from helmets? Can you believe that an M1 1967-1969 period could have still green hardware? Can I add it in my collection as vietnam helmet or I should first replace the hooks? Thanks italianfront
