    Really nice score. The liner does look to be a post war repaint 43rd liner or occupation

    Looks like a solid example, as mentioned liner is likely repainted for use during the occupation period

    Hi there,

    the liner is painted over in OD # 318. This is more typical of the 1950s.

    The helmet shell is completely from WWII. Nothing swept over. Original chin strap.

    Liner has the eyelet up front so should be WWII. Paint is most likely post war as noted. Here is the info from Questmasters. Look them up on the web. Neil

    How to identify a WWII U.S. M1 Helmet Liner, by QuestMasters Museum The High Pressure M-1 Helmet Liner shown here was produced from Spring of 1942 until the Summer of 1945 and then again in 1950, by the overlapping of resin impregnated fabric strips being compressed between metallic forms under high pressure. This style of liner was used all the way into the 1980s, but there are several ways to identify the WWII produced liners. First, all pre-1950’s liners will have the insignia eyelet in the front of the liner – often thought of as ventilation hole (this is incorrect). Next, on the inside crown of the liner will be a manufacturer marking, the example shown here is “S” for Seaman Paper Company with a lot number of 16. During WWII, there were seven manufacturers of the of the M-1 High Pressure Liner: Westinghouse, Mine Safety Appliances, Inland, International Molded Plastics, Seaman Paper Company, CAPAC and Firestone. In 1950, Westinghouse, Mine Safety Appliances and CAPAC would resume production again. The last detail that indicates a WWII produced liner, is the inside webbing and the “A” shaped washers that hold it to the liner. WWII produced liners will have a white rayon (very early production) or khaki webbing suspension. Korean War era produced liners will have green suspension webbing. The “A” shaped washers on WWII produced liners will be galvanized steel (1942), olive green painted steel (1943 through approx. June 1944) or blackened brass (June 1944 through Summer 1945). Post WWII produced “A” washers will be blacked brass or black painted steel.
