Looks like a nice liner to me. My philosophy is if you pay a little more than "today's rate" then you just have to hang on to it a little longer! Best of luck.
$80 for a complete and named liner....awesome buy I would say.
a very nice MSA made WW2 liner & named as well all for $80 nice one
can you make out the whole name ??
Its just the liner and the full name is Robert W Brode 13198435. Can anyone help me find this guy and also is there anything you can tell me about him based on the numbers in the serial number? - Nick K

Nice find. Maybe you paid more than usual but it's a nice helmet liner and most of all named
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
not really as it has a lot going for it its an MSA liner which is one of the more sort after makers, its complete & its named so $80 is a good price
But the guy enlisted after WW2. - Nick K
didn't notice that so he enlisted to late to take part in WW2 only served a year so didn't even see service in the Korean war unless theres more to his records that isn't being shown but unfortunately that's as much info as i have access to !
perhaps he served a year in the army then transferred to another branch of the armed services maybe ??
