    Hello everyone, I wanted to share my 2nd pattern Hawley Liner that my dads friend found at a antique store for $30 ! He knows my dad and I collect WWII stuff so he offered it to us for what he paid. The chinstaps broken but I'm not going to be complaining about that. I'm not a helmet collector but this sure is a sweet piece that I'm going to hang on to. I'm looking for a nice front seam fixed bail helmet to pair with this beauty. Maybe in the future I will try to get a camo cover as well.

    Hope you like it!

    That is a nice Hawley And for that price that is an outstanding pick up. For that price they normally will be falling apart with the rim looking like a mouse had at it,
    Great One John.

    Fantastic score!!! And a nice friend

    As you said, find a nice front seem shell and a nice net or cover and you have a great rig.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    The sound you can hear is my gentle sobbing into my beer glass. A fantastic find for an incredible price. Your Fathers friend should take up picking as a career, he's got the gift!!

    Bargain!

    I don't recall having seen one like that on a dealers table in the UK let alone in an antique shop

    And the laundry mark gives a mere 26 possibilities. What's not to like.

    Thanks guys! Its refreshing to get a nice piece at a very low price, finally! Of course my dad and I went to take a look at the same antique shop and we didn't see anything else.

    I snagged up a really nice fixed bale to go with the Hawley. The lot # is either 238A or 338A. Not bad for my first American helmet setup

    Can't argue with this one, Nice! has the brassy chinstrap clips too. Good match up. I'd be stoked too!
