    Underneath? But only attempt if the liners is soft and supple.

    also, as Schwerpunkt noted be careful with the liner band but if you have a nice small bright flashlight and a good magnifying glass you might be able to see a date if there is enough room between the shell and liner. You might also be able to see the reverse of the maker / date stamp if you lift up the liner. That said, do not try this if there is any change it will rip or break the liner.

    Did you see any reverse stampings on the liner band when you had the line turned inside out?

    ok. It was worth a shot. Not much more I can add beyond try to look between the liner and band (without bending it of course.

    best of luck on the sale. Would love to have a nice helmet like this in my collection on day.

    It's not important to see the factory stamps for leather of steel liners of WW2 helmets.
