This original WWII helmet liner headband was manufactured by the L & N Specialties Co. on November 5, 1943. It exhibits green painted steel clips and a blackened brass buckle, a combination utilized until the end of the war. The leather is soft, supple, and named to "German". This would be an ideal headband for a high-pressure helmet liner with either green painted steel or blackened brass A-washers.
