    I would just call it a U.S. Army Helmet. 'D 29' is probably one of the manufacturers
    lot/batch numbers. The leather chin strap in the liner fits over the steel pot's
    brim when the liner is placed inside the helmet:

    WWII front seem shells are still pretty easy to find and much cheeper than the liner, you've got the costlier piece in hand already. Just keep your eyes open and you'll have yourself a complete WWII lid in time.
