WWII US Navy Helmet W/Early Hawley Liner-This example has a grey navy finish that remains 70% intact. There are some stress cracks to the shell as is typically seen. It is a fixed bale example with front seam. The straps are OD 3 with some wear and discoloration from use. The buckle is brass. I cannot see any markings in the shell. The Hawley liner is the earliest type, with fixed chinstrap and white suspension. There are a few cracks and some wear to the cloth. The number 134 is stenciled in large format at the front of the liner. The HBT suspension shows some discoloration but is in fine condition otherwise. There are unfinished, rectangular washers. The nape strap is reinforced and the headband is present. The brown leather chinstrap is present with some wear and grey paint visible. A desirable piece!
