    I collect militaria in general, and I do happen to have 2 helicopter pilot helmets in my collection.
    How much were they, and will they ship to the USA?

    Back in college days, there was a small military town near where I lived.
    The town was called Belleveue, there were some military surplus shops, at one point there was a Russian Mig helmet, looked very cool.

    I don't collect military helmets, but I do happen to have a new in box Vietnam era Army chopper pilot helmet. I don't even remember where I got it from.

    Thanks for making this post. I had forgot I had it.
