This is an original Vietnam War M1-C paratrooper helmet set. The Mitchell camouflage cover has tightly conformed to the shape of the helmet and will not be removed for the purpose of photographing additional details. The swivel loop helmet shell retains its original paratrooper chinstraps. The straps feature early green painted steel clips and an anchor stamped buckle. The set's original airborne liner was manufactured on July 2, 1970. The rigger style A-yokes and cotton suspension are strong and intact. The liner comes complete with its original 1970 dated headband, 1970 dated neckband, and a recently installed Vietnam War chincup. There appears to be a blood stain on the leather portion of the headband and a faded spot on the camouflage cover towards the helmet's crown.
