A11 flight helmet "Army Air Force" Stamp ?


Recommended Posts

Hello Gent's

I just wanted to know if an A11 without the Army Air Force stamp is still a good A11 or did they all have that white stamp on them?

This pic is from this site and I hope Mathieu doesn't mind me using it to clarify my question.

Thanks SgtMaj. So If I found one for sale and it did not have this stamp. Should I walk away?

One more? So was this stamp an USAAF acceptance stamp?

The stamp may have just worn off. I don't think anyone does or has made a very accurate reproduction. As for if it's a acceptance stamp I"m not sure but you see a similar stamp on pretty much every model of Army flight helmet.

Many were just a decal.Worn off easily.Missing decals are common.Not a real issue.

Spec tags are usually present.

Thanks Doyler? There is a spec tag on this one with Spec 44-6548-AF. So if right It should be a 1944 production. But there are no AAF stamps. This is what has me wondering if I should pay good money for it.
