    Thanks Roberto! I think that's about the same time they started using the rubber ring under the felt.

    Yes Tony,
    I think you're right, but I think also that the two type of liners are lived together for some time.
    Look at these other two MK1 liners of my collection, both they have the rubber ring under the felt, but one is cordite made (at right) and other is leather made (at left).

    See you soon and Merry Christmas!

    Hello all,
    I think interesting to add to this post my latest find, usually I take only complete helmets with liner, but this Mk1 shell, as you can see, it has its original painting 100% complete in a really good condition; I had to take it!!

    Cheers

    That's it, I'm going to buy myself another MKI. I had sold most of them but I think I should look out for another whether in good condition or not.

    Then good research Tony,
    I still find many US M1917 or MK1 used by US Army, but British Army MK1 with original finish have become difficult to find in good conditions, at least in my area.

    Cheers
