This helmet is in virtually unissued condition. It is marked on the back, batch number D345 and it is a NS66 which translates to a 58 liner which is, except for the usual late liner wear, appears to never have been on a head. It is dome stamped and the string tie has never been touched. Exterior paint would rate 99% and the eagle would rate 100%. Has a gritty finish, and it appears the Vet did paint his ceiling as there are speckles of white paint on the helmet.
