Lot # 544 - Live Auction 2017 - Alpa Chino's (Brandon T. Jackson) Helmet, Dog Tags, and Necklace

Stock #74366

Alpa Chino's (Brandon T. Jackson) helmet, dog tags and necklace from Ben Stiller's war comedy Tropic Thunder. Alpa Chino wore his helmet and accessories when he was dropped into the jungles of Vietnam to shoot a movie, guerilla style.

The helmet is an American M1 military helmet and is covered in cotton camouflage material. The cover features hand-drawn designs in black ink, such as the Leo zodiac symbol, and text that reads 'SOUL BROTHA'S' and 'B.M.F'. A strap holds numerous decorations in place, including a pack of cigarettes, a playing card, a beaded necklace, and a Black Panther hair pick.

Also included are a single Alpa Chino dog tag and his bullet necklace. The dog tag is made of metal and is embossed with his name and personal statistics. The tag is attached to a beaded metal chain and is wrapped in olive green tape. Alpa Chino's necklace features three hollow 223 ammunition shells threaded on a leather cord, with numerous wood beads on either side. The lot shows intentional production distressing, but remains in very fine condition. Dimensions (helmet): 28 cm x 23 cm x 18 cm (11" x 9" x 7")
