Vietnam War Era USAF Pilot's Early HGU-2/P Flight Helmet, Gentex, Size Large This is a Vietnam War era USAF pilot's early HGU-2/P flight helmet. It was made by Gentex in 1960 and is a Size Large. This was a very early HGU-2 with the chrome metal edge on the visor knob slot, metal visor tracks and the early style knob. The helmet is missing the earcups and comm gear, but the shell is in good condition and would be a good candidate to build up a Vietnam helmet.The visor is in excellent condition and works smoothly. The styrofoam liner is in nice shape and just needs a little cleaning. The rubber edge roll is loose from the helmet and needs to be glued back on.
The cracks visible on the visor housing are cracks in the paint only. There may be a few items that are listed in both categories.
