    Nope, it's a 5A which was prior to the impact cap N5A.

    Well I "hope" to get the most I can! It's one of the nicest 5A's I've seen, bidding started at $100.

    Too bad it's in da box. A salted up 5A from da bronx, not in da box, would be a hot buff commodity for some here.

    There are a few on ebay daily..I got outbid on a nice vintage Truck Lt's lid last week...collecting helmets can be serious bidness on ebay! LOL...

    I just picked up a 5a from one of our retired Captains, it was his Lieutenant hat in the 80's. I love it.

    Mine is a medium black like every helmet should be with nomex flaps and standard eagle. It has never been worn. Plastic still on the bourkes .Still smells new. My friend has his dads helmet from when he got on in 1960. Man if that thing could talk it would cough!

    A never worn Medium should catch a pretty penny on eBay!

    The lid I got yesterday from the retired Cap'n is the same way! (Cough)

    I don't like ebay. Not for selling, it isn't fair for the buyers.
