This U.S. Army helmet is a piece of art. The Mitchell helmet cover has the original graffiti that was inked on in the late 1960s. The 1967 dated cover features the Rat Fink character grasping an enemy Viet Cong, as well as other graphics. The Rat Fink was originally drawn by artist Ed Roth. The elastic cammo band holds a picture of a Vietnamese bar girl, and has the soldiers name written on it. The helmet was picked up at an estate sale, and family members always remembered the picture being with the helmet. A super nice Vietnam era helmet.
