    I think mine had it too but it got worn off - white circular emblem.

    That's in really nice condition. . Is that the liner used in the Sohlberg helmets by the Finnish Army? I'm trying to find information on prewar Finnish liners? (I have a Finnish Army Austrian M17 helmet but I don't know if the liner is prewar/WW2/or a post war Finnish replacement)

    Here's my Finnish Army Austrian M17. From opinions given to posts made here and on other boards, I believe the liner may be dated to WW2 and not post war.

    check out Pottia.net, Finnish helmet depot liners
    it appears to be late 1940s / early 1950s liner.
    My helmet has m/55 liner - used after yours.

    Difficult to precisely date the liner. Other opinions given by some Finn collectors here and on Gunboards.com is that it's a WW2 liner. Its hard to compare to photographs though. Here's another link to Finnish helmets:
