Hey Simon, just an idea, but if this was from your latest Canadian government surplus haul, is there a chance that there may have been a Canadian contractor in the early 60's that may have produced these for the US shells we bought from the Americans?

 

Is anybody out there aware of a possible Canadian made M1 liner? It'd be pretty cool if there was!

I was just looking up the Canadian Marconi Company, as they are a very well known Canadian military contractor from the 30's right through to recent times....granted, their main military contributions were radio components and electronics but I do believe they moved into other kit in the early 60's as cheaper and more advanced electronics started coming from off-shore contracts....I can't find any direct connection to helmet liners, but anything's possible... :think:

This was a private purchase of a lot of helmets, still no luck finding the governments stash of liners :crying:

I think I still have my original issue liner from 1980, I'll have to dig it out and check the makers stamp and see what it looks like

Hey nice fixed bail you got there! Has it been repainted for Vietnam?

Justin

 

It is not part of my helmet surplus purchase, I just bought it today. As far as I can tell it is not repainted - care to weigh in on that? The chin strap buckle is a little odd looking as well.

There was a government sale a few years ago in PA, I was able to snag a few hundred mint Vietnam liners. I sold a lot of them. Never saw helmet shells for sale.

 

 

I notice you said "sold a lot of them" and not "sold all of them"....lets pool our resources if you have any left :)
