    Yup, a rare desirable beastie. I bet there are none in the wild this side of the pond.

    I found this info from another post on this forum.


    "The end of the war in Europe in May and the war against Japan in August of 1945 meant that not one of the completed “Liner, Helmet, M-1, Crash” ever saw action in World War II. The cessation of hostilities saw the War Department canceling defense contracts across the board. The helmet liner was quickly declared obsolete and the contract with MSA cancelled.

    The War Department received notification in January 1946, that MSA had on hand 10,070 of the ‘Liner, Helmet, M-1, Crash’ that were already completed and that the Army was contractually obligated to purchase these completed liners. The Armored Branch took the 10,070 completed liners and issued them as a limited, standard item to training units until the early 1950s.

    MSA followed procedures which had been approved for helmet liner manufacturers at the beginning of the war and took all remaining uncompleted and rejected ‘Liner, Helmet, M-1, Crash’ and fitted them with simple plastic strapping liners and sold them to retailers as children’s toys."
