ID:	928636Hi Gents this came as part of a auction lot.
    Helmet liners are not my strong suit.

    The highlights-
    on the outside metal band it states "56" (leather is stamped 55)
    "Schbert werk k.g D.R.P 1940" line underneath is impossible to make out

    Never owned a German helmet with such a dark colored liner its a deep brown/orange color

    it looks like it has 2 metal bands inside one another the inside once is painted grey

    What do you guys think, is it legit and if so what model lids would this be put in.

    Thanks in advance

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    it is standard construction german helmet liner - German-Helmets.com
    the leather color is probably result of cleaning / preserving agents
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    A good one. They are getting pricey. Last show (Ag Hall Allentown) they were priced in the $150 to $200 range. NH

    The liner looks to be a post war Norwegian liner with dyed leather? with brass pins maybe?

    Absolutely Norwegian reissue..... the brass domed head pins ( seen in the 5th photo ) give the game away. German made liners ALWAYS had the flat head aluminium pins
