This is your basic brain bucket. Look for helmets that have the seam in the front. Korean and later helmets will have the seam in the back of the helmet. You can generally find helmets in antique stores and militaria shows for about $50. You might have to replace the webbing, chin straps, and head band. Expect to have about $100 into a helmet by the time you're all done.
