A textbook example of the standard issue NVA sun helmet. Note the twill cotton cover, the purple glue holding the exterior band to the shell, the all-aluminum hardware, leather chinstrap, pink primer on the M shaped suspension washers, purple tie cord in the headband etc.

We seldom see one in this condition. However, we spoke with a 1st Cav Vet back in the 1980s who was in the Cambodian Invasion in May, 1970. He told of his unit finding various caches of NVA equipment there.  One cache had about 200 brand new NVA sun helmets like this one.  Those who wanted a souvenir took one.

He said they STOMPED on the rest with their jungle boots!!!
