    Vietnam Era Paratroopers liner, nape strap dated 1969, Michell Liner, also Nam' era, along with the camo band. Pictures of the steel shell would be nice, and a clear photo of the text on the inside of the cover. I think that style of liner was made between the 50's and early 60's, not sure however.

    Few more things you might want to check; The heat stamp in the front dome of the helmet, on the inside. Should be some numbers, possibly a letter (just to confirm the shell is not WWII, possibly a Schlueter if it has a large S stamp near the heat stamp); and the seam on the rim of the helmet, is it at the front or rear? Rear I'd imagine, since the rim doesn't look to be stainless steel.

    Fine complete M1 by the way, thanks for sharing.
