    Thanks BG not what I wanted to here is it safe to assume that the Israelis sourced some of the earlier liners and components from the US to use in there helmets.

    hi Mark,

    it sounds like the seller pieced this set together himself from parts he found by the auction description:

    I bought one of the U.S. M1 "looking" helmets with 3 bales (instead of 2) one in the rear. Researched it and found images of it from the Arab Israeli six day war in 1967. I also found a liner, chin strap and camo net that all came together well to make this helmet.

    Yes, the Israelis definitely received a large amount of US liners to use for their IDF helmets, Ive even seen several Vietnam era liners that have been rewebbed by the Israelis, they also used complete US liners & headbands with US maker markings and dates.

    even if the liner is from Taiwan, it's still a possibility they would have used a Taiwan export liner in the Israeli M1

    Thanks BG I had read his description so there was no illusion that all the pieces were married since the beginning I hummed and hawed about it for a couple of days do to the liner as I could not find a comparable but having a few other Vintage M-1 liners at home I thought it might be worth a punt if it did not sell to high .

    Hi James thanks for your input the only thing that I am a 100% on is the helmet body and the harness so I may have to swap out and replace a few components to bring it back to its glory days it will be intresting to see once I get it in hand.

    the liner that comes with your Israeli M1 set is still a nice unusual liner that I dont see very often, so it would still be an interesting M1 liner varient to have in the collection

    it could be a hard to find export liner that goes to another countries M1 possibly a Saudi / UAE export model
