Today we are happy to offer for sale a truly awesome Hasbro G.I. Joe 1964 Army Helmet set! The initial product offering for G.I. Joe represented four of the branches of the U.S. armed forces with the Action Soldier (U.S. Army), Action Sailor (U.S. Navy), Action Pilot (Air Force), Action Marine (Marine Corps) and later on, the Action Nurse. The name derived from the usage of “G.I. Joe” for the generic U.S. soldier, itself derived from the more general term “G.I.” (the term G.I. has been used as an initialism of “Government Issue” or “General Issue”, but it originally referred to “galvanized iron”). The development of G.I. Joe led to the coining of the term “action figure”. G.I. Joe’s appeal to children has made it an American icon among toys. This wonderful 1964 made in Japan set features Authentic Equipment for the G.I. Joe Action Soldier. The set includes an Army helmet, a hair net, and vegetation camouflage. The set is in the original, unopened packaging. Item presents beautifully and is in very good unused vintage condition, with very minor shelf wear commensurate with age. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a RARE and hard to find unopened and unused G.I. Joe Action Soldier Equipment Set. Will make an awesome addition to any G.I. Joe collection! Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 8″ in height, 6″ in width, 1-1/8″ in depth
