    It looks like it could be a good liner with a wax like coating. Usually when someone applies a protectant it turns the leather dark brown, but thats just the ones I have seen. Liner fits well in the band. I don't see a huge difference in wear between the outside of the shell and the liner, though there looks to be some rust on the top inside of dome. Looks like a Quist lid by the vent holes. I'd like to see this one in hand just to be certain. Wait for some more to chime in.

    I like it.....someone loved this lid...Liner looks good, I reckon it is contemporary to the helmet.....

    Looks like a great period lid to me as well. Liner looks fine, no red flags and matches the helmet as said above. Looks like it might have had a winter wash at some point in its life. Very nice helmet.
