    Liner identity?
    That's the only stamp I can see for certain.

    Also is there any known way to date the helmet by these pictures? The helmet has a rough texture.

    The marking in the liner is an Ordnance inspection stamp.

    On the inside of the dome of the helmet, is there a letter N about 2 inches tall in white paint?

    Can I get a picture of the N?
    Like for reference of how it looks or where it is?

    Nice lid, I would say the ring is for hanging the helmet on a nail,etc....
