  1. I have a military youtube channel called JonBoy09. I am always adding items to my military collection and making new videos. I also from time to time make informative videos to help other collectors with information they may be needing. I made a couple videos earlier this year about how to date/determine era of helmets using the heat stamp. I believe these videos can really help people out. I did a video first on dating helmets from World War One - World War Two and then the second video is on dating helmets from Korea - Vietnam. Here are the links to those 2 videos. I hope they are helpfu

Probably my best deal at a goodwill would be when I found a Vietnam era helmet in the toy section for $3....
  3. Darn, well I appreciate you taking the time to check for me. I am hopeful that one day the missing items will be found and returned to our family. Thanks Jonathan
