    Default Liner question

    Just noticed on my m42 helmet liner on the end of one of the fingers just below the hole where the string threads through it has be stamped/embossed with the date 1943 , not seen this before is this a common stamping . The date matches the liner band . The stamping is not ink but has been stamped using a die and has been stamped on the skin side of the leather.

    It's common to find liners with date stamps, but usually they are made with ink. I recall once seeing a civilian liner with an unusual brand like date stamp, similar to the look of a chinstrap stamp.
