Late-WWII Westinghouse Airborne Paratrooper M1-C Helmet Liner
This is an original and untouched U.S. WWII Westinghouse manufactured paratrooper helmet liner. It features original factory installed A-yokes with large cast buckles. The A-washers are blackened brass, which date the liner's production from mid-1944 to 1945. The khaki suspension is torn throughout. It retains its original headband, neckband, and black-buckled leather liner strap, all of which show heavy use and damage. The liner's exterior retains its original olive drab factory finish. This liner would make for an excellent Operation Varsity display when paired with an M1-C paratrooper helmet shell or later fixed loop.
