This genuine M-1 Rear Seam helmet from the Vietnam War has been fashioned into a pendant light. All helmets in the collection are in their original form, with the exception of the retrofitted light. All of the helmets are numbered according to their Heat Stamp. A disabled veteran retro-fitted these helmets into a beautiful collectors item. The cord is 19.5 ft in length, with a on/off toggle switch & plug in cord (a 47.2" adjustable hard-wire light kit is also available upon request). See pics for original condition of helmets. Please send us an email with your preference of hard-wired or toggle switch for the light kit.
*We do our best to leave all surplus and munitions as close to original as possible, while still restoring the item. Most of our pendant lights have not been resurfaced or restored from their original form. There will be notations describing the alterations done in each individual description.
*All of our helmets can have a name plate added for a small fee (see Custom Name Plates)
