This is an original early-WWII Hawley manufactured M1 helmet liner. It retains non-painted steel rectangular washers, a first pattern rayon suspension, and stationary leather liner strap, dating the liner's production from mid-1941 to mid-1942. The rayon suspension is named to a "Stubbs". The suspension is tearing by one of the front snaps, the leather liner strap is damaged, and the body of the liner is cracked and dented throughout. It comes complete with its original rayon headband and neckband.
