The early body armor is just killer, it's amazing how rarely they show up considering it was pretty much as standard issue as the M1 helmet for a Marine in a combat zone. Lovely displays, makes me want to take my stuff out of storage.

Very good point. One survey found 98% of marines wore flak jackets in Vietnam. I wonder why so few flak jackets are seen. Do you know did marines outside of Vietnam have flak jackets? Maybe that could be the reason so many more helmets than flak jackets can be seen. Maybe the helmets are mostly army?

I would assume that a vest used in county would be ready for a dumpster before a Marines duty was complete. They got dirty fast and the material rips easily.

 

Most "combat" helmets people claim to be authentic field used examples were in reality probably no where near an actual combat zone.
