NAF 1092W with USMC patch


Recommended Posts

This is an odd one, looks like some rigger attached ear cups that were badly stitched, but the interesting feature is the apparently hand-crafted leather USMC EGA patch on the front. Very unique looking helmet. I dont have it in hand yet, (these are the sellers photos) but a trusted forum member has had a close look at it for me and says it looks legit ???

The EGA looks more 50s/60s to me, but Ive never seen one sewn on this way either

Check out my eBay page, I sell military insignia and just about anything else I come across

Agree - EGA looks much later than the helmet. Looks like something assembled for a display piece much later. I'd also add that the ear cup stitching looks very fresh - they sell loose ear cups on ebay quite often.

1. Someone saw you do it.

2. You didn't tick off the approval chain.

Anything is possible, but I thought it was worth the shot for something that’s a little different. The ear cups concern me more than the EGA patch, but again, there are so many things we haven’t seen or have photographic evidence of, I figure that there’s always a chance a pilot customised his helmet.
