I saw this liner for auction on eBay yesterday. It sold for $245.50. This is a rare liner for the X-51 Experimental Helmet tested in the 1950's. Since I have been unable to find photo's of this one anywhere else on the Internet, I thought it best to save these pictures to post here for future reference.

Do you still have the item number or link to this auction? Could you post it you do?
This guy really missed out, a similar one sold for around $700 a couple of months ago.

I saw this picture on Ebay the other day, It is listed as an add from 1959 with a GI in a pretty strange outfit for sure, but check out his helmet and the fold away NVGs.  1959 GI pic.JPG
