Camo M1 helmet pattern any ideas?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I picked up this camo helmet at a market and think I have seen the pattern before but I just can't remember where. Any of you camo or helmet experts have any ideas? Thanks for any input you have.

Respectfully,

Tyler

Difficult to tell from the photos, but it appears to be a silica grit 1970's rear seam helmet. Painted camo patterns on USGI helmets had pretty much gone out of use by that time period, so this could be a foreign paint job.

I agree, it looks 60s or later.

yeah I was thinking maybe ROK or ARVN but definitely post WWII.

I know I have seen that same pattern in a book that I have. Now I just have to remember which one.

Thanks for the comments and opinions.
