    This is not a LT helmet it is a warrant officers helmet ,I would say post-war.

    It is Warrant Officer, as Chris states above - this style was not used
    in WWII - it is a later design.........

    Below, WWII US Army Warrant Officer insignia:

    Your liner is a first Lt white color so the shell rank on the helmet should be white.
    Yellow is for a butter bar second LT.

    Also if you where to get the shell for the liner, I think the rust on the top would get all over the top of the Hawley. If seriously looking for a shell I would suggest just to get a regular shell. They did not always paint rank insignia on their helmets

    Post war. You can try posting a thread asking if anyone has one and see if they will sell it to you.

    What gave it away was the Warrant Officers bar on the front of the helmet.
    Even if it was a Lt bar it is gold so it would be a second Lt bar.
    The bar on your liner looks silver so it would be a first Lt bar.
    Even if the bars matched you would not pair them because the helmet is a SB.
    Hawley liners are correctly paired with Fixed Bale pots.
    In closing you need a FB helmet with a silver or white bar on the front.
    That will likely be an expensive venture for a not so good condition Hawley.
