U.S. ARMY M1 W/HOOD RUBBER LINER

U.S Army M1 Helmet front seam, fix bails named to C. E. Ha?tman. In front it's stenciled the soldier's name. The shell has 100% of its original dark green corked paint in good condition. Kahki chinstrap OD #3 with black buckle and hook. The liner is a rare low pressure Hood Rubber complete of leather chinstrap, sweatband and neck band. HR produced only about 0,5% of the M1 liners during WW2. Its paint is chipping off here and there. Leather chinstrap is tightly fastened to it. A rusty spot inside the shell matches the loss of paint on the liner's back on the left, so I assume they have always been kept together. According with the production lot# on the shell this set can be dated around August 1943.
