    someone probably changed the liner at some later point, it's not a big deal, these helmets were used into the 80's when they came out with the kevlar crap, so it's not a big deal , unless you are into being totally correct, the old one could have gotten damaged & replaced. I have about 7 NAM helmets, never even looked at the liners really. NICK D is the m-1 expert around here. take care & good deal on finding a named helmet, only 2 of mine were named. good hunting

    Thank you for getting back so quick my pictures would not upload but i was wondering what (ops pilot) means and why he would be wearing an m1-helmet.
