Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

A beautiful example of a combat worn U.S.Marine Corps set. The cover has always been with this helmet and shows all the characteristics of a complete set, there is some rust spotting and areas where rust has eaten through the edge of the helmet cover where it meets the steel.

These type of helmets were worn during the Korean war and in the early period of Vietnam by the U.S.Marine Corps. The cover is the 2nd pattern Marine Corps cover which has to the front the lightly stencilled globe and anchor badge. There are various names and service numbers carefully stencilled underneath the flaps. The liner is the all green type with the thin brown leather chin strap. The manufacturer of the liner is Firestone. The helmet chin straps are the typical green type with the metal attachments to the swivel bales. The overall unit is excellent and makes a nice talking point for a helmet collection. It is scarce to find helmet combinations such as these that have always remained as they were issued. Code: 50820
