#RG13 Vietnam War 'Advisor' Tiger Stripe Jungle Fatigues
Nice pair of original Vietnam War 'Advisor' tiger stripe jungle fatigues for ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) soldiers working with the Americans.  These uniforms were extremely popular due to their cool camouflage pattern.  The jacket is theatre made, while the trousers are U.S. made in size 'A-S' for Asian Small.  This is a small size uniform, a lot of these advisors were very small people and this set nowadays would probably fit a kid instead of an adult. 
Priced as a set $725. Priced separately: Jacket $400, Trousers $325.

Original 3rd pattern Fairbairn-Sykes fighting knife manufactured by J. KNOWLLES & SONS.  A really nice British issue commando knife from the early post-WWII era that would have been used by the SAS, Airborne, and other British special forces.   Excellent condition, the blade is in mint condition with lightly engraved makers mark still intact, it appears it has been never used with no signs of sharpening.  The handle has some paint loss to the high points but I think this is from age and not use.  The scabbard is in near mint condition.  An excellent fighting knife in top condition. $225

#SB7 Vietnam 'Graffiti' M1 Helmet - An Khê 1970
Vietnam 'Graffiti' M1 helmet.  The graffiti include reference to the famous region of An Khê in Vietnam during 1970 with tour dates, other script including 'Soul Power' (Popular slogan with black soldiers) and 'No Bic' (Perhaps because he had to use a felt tipped marker and not a pen).   I have made no attempt to take this apart, it is undisturbed and I have not even touched the helmet band which like the cover has really snugged down over time.  The interior of the helmet is salty, and it's likely a rodent did a bit of chewing on some liner components.  It has become increasingly difficult to acquire an original untouched Vietnam helmet with period writing on the cover. This iconic helmet would look great in any helmet collection. *Sold*
