    I think the seam is in the front but it is hard to see. If it is in the front then it is a ww2 pot with the latest issue chinstaps. This is a nice set. Do you see any numbers on the inside front rim of the helmet? This would help me accurately date the pot. Also, what is the maker of the liner. Nice ww2 set.

    Its a front seam and the liner is a firestone. it does have some # on the front but I will have to take it back apart. Gary

    Danny I cant make out the #all I can see is 88?. I've been doing a little research and I believe this is a WWII lid refurbished with a T1 chin strap release (T1 chin strap came out in August 1945) soooo for $50 US the leather chin strap paid for the hole thing.
