This is an original early-WWII Inland manufactured M1 helmet liner. It features non-painted steel A-washers, a transitional khaki suspension, and folded ends on the neck support. These early features date the liner's production from mid-1942 to mid-1943. The suspension is strong and intact. It comes complete with its original early-war khaki neckband and a recently installed size 7 1/8 rayon headband. The exterior's original olive drab factory paint finish is in good condition, with some worn areas throughout.
