    Hi and welcome to the Forum. Pot looks good, but
    others will chime in to verify. Both chinstraps are
    re-sewn 'Viet-nam era' type and the liner is
    Belgian - '1953'.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    As before the Liner is a Belgium M-51 and the marking (ABL= Belgian Army / Belgische Leger) The shell appears to be a late war US helmet, it is not so strange to have such a matching of different nations part's placed together, I bought a similar set up many years ago myself
