#RG13 Vietnam War 'Advisor' Tiger Stripe Jungle Fatigues

Show More

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 and have a super 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 very small size uniform, a lot of these advisors were very small people and this set nowadays would probably fit a kid and not many of us would be able to fit into them!  Please beware of the small size. 

Priced as a set $725. Priced separately: Jacket $400, Trousers $325.

Private purchase Colt 1911 Sam Browne belt with holster and mag pouch. Not maker marked, perhaps as early as WWII but more likely Korea / Vietnam period. Named in the flap.  Nice set for a 1911, could even still be used for the range.  $45

Vietnam 'Graffiti' M1 Helmet - An Khê 1970

Show More

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*
