This original WWII helmet liner headband is in fair condition. The leather is dry and cracking, but still intact. Its manufacturer's marking has since faded, however the buckle and spring clips are green painted steel, which date the headband's production from mid-1942 to late-1943. This would be an ideal headband for a helmet liner with either non-painted or green painted steel A-washers.
