Helmet Cover era?


Recommended Posts

I got this helmet cover but was unsure of the era. There are no discerning marks on the cover itself. It also appears to be reversible.

The helmet cover guys will want to see the sand side stiching at the edge and the center seem. If you could get good pics of thos and post these guys can tell you for sure.

I agree with mike on this one. The edges of the flaps look off and the stitching looks like it may be modern thread.

It's a 21th century cover ... aka no good, repro, fake, as you like ;)
