An honest piece, and fairly priced, in my opinion. Congratulations!

I also thought it looked to be an honest combat used helmet. When you get it be sure to check inside the liner to see if there's any writing, tho John usually does a good job of doing that himself. (and this one is a sun helmet, not pith)
