    Hello,

    I don't consider the liner to be a US production. At the moment I don't know where it comes from, but it is a mixture of P 1956 and P 1964. There are also unusual rivets.
    Are there any stamps inside?

    Does the shell stamp and the helmet cover have stamps or markings?

    The helmet cover looks like a brown dominat ERDL camouflage, so made after the Vietnam War.


    Regards

    I honestly didn't think it was possible to have that happen, unless they super glued the cover to the pot? If so, First time hearing that being the case.

    If the shell is rusty, it might have adhered itself to the fabric of the cover over time, the way rusty staples sometimes stick to paper. Saying that, you'd expect to see some rust flooding through the fabric if that were the case.

    I inspected this helmet and on the belt it says something like "liner" and on the helmet it has a little crack on it
