    to make sure the liner goes with the steel shell you need to see if there are the female side of the press stud on the inside of the liner so that the chin strap can be attached to it as with all these type of airborne helmets have?????

    so a pic with the chin strap out of the way would confirm this

    Here`s some pics of the liner and camo cover,it is marked for ground troop use, I don`t know if it makes any difference but this would have been Canadian issue.

    I heard the last contract for US M1 helmets were manufactured in CANADA in the 1980's, your helmet shell could of been made in CANADA

    they didnt make them in the US because of environmental concerns, so they had the last batch made in Canada.

    These helmets are of the type used during the Vietnam war, however the design was manufactured
    and issued up until the '80's. This one is new, mint, unissued, late.

    My step son picked this one up a few years ago for $10. It used to be complete and intact !
    ( The right strap is around here somewhere ! ) This particular lid is not from the Vietnam era.
    They were, as 'Panzer 3' Dave says, surplussed as Kevlar helmets came into use.

    I wouldn't complain about yours either Zwerge. It is a nice helmet ! !

    these late issue helmets were still in use during the Grenada Invasion back in 1983 and also by the Marines in Beirut Lebanon.
