HE SERVED ARE COUNTRY FOR 27 YEARS BEGINNING WITH A FOUR YEAR ENLISTMENT IN THE U. HE THEN WAS A OFFICER FOR 23 YEARS IN THE U. S AIR FORCE SERVING AS A PILOT AND ENDURING TWO TOURS IN VIETNAM, RETIRING AT THE RANK OF MAJOR. I WILL NOT POST HIS NAME ON HERE BUT YOU CAN MESSAGE ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SO YOU WILL BE SURE THAT THIS HELMET HAS SOME HISTORY.THE HELMET IS IN VERY NICE CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT BUT I KNOW THAT THE EAR PADDING IS DRIED OUT BUT THERE ARE NO RIPS OR TEARS ON IT. THE CASING OF THE CORD FOR THE MASK IS DETERIORATED AND BROKEN. THE LABEL INSIDE SAYS HELMET FLYING TYPE P-4B (USAF) CONSOLIDATED CONTROLS CORP AND DATED (JUNE 4 1959).
ON THE FRONT OF THE SHIELD IT HAS (HOAX) ENGRAVED AND ON THE BACK OF THE HELMET ON THE STRAPS IT HAS (SNIPER HOAX) WRITTEN ON IT WHICH IS NOT HIS REAL NAME ALTHOUGH THE (HOAX) IS VERY CLOSE TO HIS LAST NAME. I HAVE TRIED TO TAKE PICTURES OF ALL AROUND THE HELMET SO PLEASE SEE ALL PICTURES FOR CONDITION. I HAVE NOT CLEANED OR DONE ANYTHING WITH THE HELMET SO YOU WILL RECEIVE IT EXACTLY HOW I DID. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL , PLEASE ASK AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR LOOKING.
