Re: Steel Helmets with out ventilator horns

Close to 30 years ago I just started collecting . I went to a local gun show and they had a m-16 apple green and it was missing the lugs and it looked to have never had them . The paint was about 95% and looked original with no shadow or ghosting were they would have been . The dealer wanted $250 fo...

Under closer examination my gray star is the standard infantry larger size.

Is it possible that these plates were NEVER issued with a star ?

I have seen modern pics with uhlans having the large star.

I do not think I have even seen a smaller star on a gray eagle

In Randy T's book he has a printed flyer that was given out showing spikes and an garde uhlan without the star.
They had hundreds of them.
You see more m-15 without the star than with.
