I have a Nam helme with mild graffiti in my collection. Just bought a modern cover for a kevlar helmet that was covered, just because it was interesting for only $2. Guy's whole squad signed it, apparently he was getting out and they wished him luck.

 

Well, it's only legit if the ink is faded! Just kidding, of course. I firmly believe that the mantra that the ink must be faded to be from Vietnam is subject to individual cover scrutiny. Folks need to remember that helmets were used by personnel other than grunts and will, therefore, have differing levels of wear, tear, and fade.

That's cool! Is that infantry marking further back?

Always looking for Vietnam War US Special Forces/MACV-SOG jungle shirts/uniforms and OG107 Shirts/uniforms.

That's a nice looking set Andrei, not sure how I missed it, did it come with a liner? Is the cover dated?
