The liner is manufactured by Westinghouse, with manufactures mark stamped lightly on the inside crown of the liner "W" as would be proper for a WWII liner. The liner is in great shape and is original. The liner has the original correct khaki color webbing for this liner, all intact and in great shape. The head band is original period, and in good shape. Leather chin strap is post war, nice brown color, black-painted steel, secured to liner using original period rounded studs.
This is a nice helmet of the USMC. The Marines fought in some of the toughest battles of WWII, Guadalcanal, Peleliu, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima, just to name a few. Great example of a WWII USMC Helmet with original camouflage cover. This would be great in any collection or museum.
