Desert Storm 'Chocolate Chip' Helmet Cover with Graffiti

Hi, I'm not really a modern collector but I thought the graffiti on this cover looked legit and I couldn't pass it up. It would be good to get some feedback from more specialised collectors though. The cover is marked with the following:

 

  • Nike tick with the 'Just Do It' logo next to some bombers
  • Saddam (blacked out) Your F**ked 
  • Operation Desert Storm (All blacked out) next to Jan.17 1991
  • Anti Exxon sign over a blacked out peace sign
  • Some other stuff I cannot make out particularly on the top of the cover which is quite worn. Suggestions welcome!
  • The name 'Faltz'. Unfortunately no initial so probably impossible to try and track down the original owner?

 

Thanks for looking.


Regards,

 

Desmond

Nice cover. I'm sure these will be faked someday, and maybe the fakers are already at work, but I don't think there is enough money or widespread interest in them to make it worthwhile yet. I'm sure there was a ton of down time in the desert which lead to the graffiti. If I could collect just one thing it would be 6 color desert helmet covers. 

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a thousand pictures!

I have several chocolate chip helmet covers like this one and the ones I have are all are pretty much like yours are.  Most

have several different notations like yours does and they cover a variety of topics.  Nice score! 

Thanks!

I think these modern era graffiti covers are very cool and still vastly under appreciated.  Get ‘em now before the fakers take notice and they become hot commodities!  Nice addition to the collection.

Nice! I still have my own Desert Storm graffiti marked cover and Kpot. It sits next to my own OIF worn ACH.

I've been thinking it would be fun to make a 6-color desert helmet cover mega thread.

Thanks for the feedback and positive comments guys. I realised afterwards that a lot of the finer details were lost when the photos were resized for posting. Here is the best post up I can get of the graffiti on the top of the cover. It seems to say something like '374 H.E., WE SUPPORT, Jockey'. If anyone can throw any light on what that means I'd appreciate it.

 

Regards,
