    A bare shell, they should have a liner system like this Ques Collection -- US Navy Mk II talker helmet
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I remember trying to sell my more common blue painted MKII Talker helmet w/ chin strap and I almost couldnt give it away, it must be because of the factory OD finish? most of them are the sea blue color.

    I read somewhere the US issue MKII helmets were only mfg during WWII by McCord Radiator company, and the early versions were painted in OD green , old navy veterans say they hated wearing these helmets during their time in the navy, they were uncomfortable and only came in one size, the helmet shown in the OP is only missing the chin strap, the canvas coated foam padding is the liner and were normally worn with earphones

    notice the sailor in the photo on the left has a OG painted Talker helmet? those must be early WWII issue.

    Here´s quite a lot info on the Talker helmet, all in español.
    USA MK2 TALKER
    For those who are not fluid and skilled in Don Quijote´s tongue, there are also a lot of really nice pics..

    It says that between 1940-1945 about 400´000 Talkers where made by "Mc Cord Radiator Manufacturing Company" from non magnetic Manganese Steel.
    The Liner was manufactured by FIRESTONE TIRE & RUBBER CO.

    My Talker Helmet is grey-blueish, as most of the ones i have seen..
    As fas as i know, they are all wartime-issue.
    And to pay 406 USD for one of them just for being green.. well good luck to the seller, i´d rather have my grey one which costed me some 35USD..
