ARVN ranger helmet


Recommended Posts

Here's a story for you.

 

I was at the Rose bowl flea market in 15 odd years ago hunting with bob and the sun had just came up.

The market was busy and we were looking fast.

I maybe had $21 bucks left in my pocket

Bob had spent all his.

I see an Arvn helmet to the right sitting on the ground

I picked it up

It was real

I asked how much

$500

Here take this 20 I will be right back

We went to my old boss and I borrowed the 500

He was an old time vintage shark who knows a good thing but was having problems with loaning me the bones

Take it out of my wages !!

Ok

Here's the loot

We went back And got the lid

Not many words were said between us as we walked away I poped the liner and it wAs also painted

Score of a lifetime.

It doesn't end there !!!!! Ipost-2009-14478676879948.jpg

So 5 years after finding the helmet I let it go to a friend who equally liked it.

I needed furniture for my home and the helmet came in handy to fund this.

Then something happened

I began to miss the lid after a year !!

This rarely happens with me so began the long road to get it back

9 years later we completed a deal involving a rare set of indo China windproof camouflage and the lid is mine again

The sun is throwing a glare on these today

3 in a row showing uniformity

The green brown is hand painted

The black is stenciled

The lime is also

The tiger is multi piece design and Very complex

Paint appears to be auto type and is thick
