This is an M1 U.S. helmet from the Vietnam War era 1964 to 1969, all that is missing is the internal head-band, that clips into the liner. The liner would have been made from between 64-69 when they were making both types of liners (cotton duck and the new nylon liner) the suspension webbing however was the same in both. This is a rare combination of new nape strap and ‘asterisk’ webbing mixed with the older cotton duck liner.  These were both made in tandem during that time period which is right on for Vietnam.

The cloth camo reversable cover is period correct. It has seen a little action but generally in good condition. Internal on the “pacific camo”, it is stamped in ink:


DPSC stands for Defense Personal Support Centre which was a subordinate organisation of DSA. DSA is often seen stamped on many types of military clothing including helmet covers meaning Defence Supply Agency. All organisations set up at the time by US Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara. The contract for the helmet cover (8133) began in 1965 and ran through to 1969.

This is an excellent M1 helmet from a turbulent time for the United States when the Vietnam War was running at its highest and most brutal.
