Hawley Liner For Review

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, one of my fathers friends found this in a antique shop for a couple bucks. He knows my dad and I collect WWII stuff so he offered it to us for what he paid. I'm not a helmet collector (this is my first US helmet related piece) so I am out of my realm of collecting here, I just wanted to know if everything looked ok on it. I know the chinstrap is broken on one end but other than that it looks to be in good shape to me, but I don't have a clue when it comes to helmet items. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the info and confirmation guys! I saw theres some repros of this liner so I just wanted to be sure. With only 30 bucks in it, it was as a win-win either way. Now begins the hunt of finding a nice helmet and a USMC camo cover to go with it. I think Im off to a good start though for my first helmet piece. Thanks again!

I would say! For $30 you should go buy a lottery ticket! As Justin stated, that sweat soaked interior shows use and is just awesome and adds some great character to this super nice liner. Nice pick up, and a home run for your first helmet type pick up for sure.


Always looking for 325th G.I.R. and WWII USMC items!

You need a nice front seam fixed bail with intact od #3 chin straps.

Thats a prized liner at an unbelieveable great price !

Ive seen nice ones go for 6-7 hundred bucks !

Holy cow! Great score !

To give you an idea what they often look like and how great yours is.... Heres mine.

And I was glad to get it !!!

Looks like s laundry # inside. Maybe possible to I'd. Depending on the area it was found. Awesome find.

There's 26 entries on the ww2 enlistment records site.

Nice well worn liner that is in great condition considering the amount of wear in the webbing and brim. Great pick up!

Thanks guys! The chinstrap doesnt really bother me but it is a shame its broken. I tried looking up the Laundry number as Bill suggested, it could be the Kansas entry. If I recall correctly the antique store owner here in Nebraska goes down to Kansas to find items for their inventory. But as always with laundry numbers its just a guess, none of the entries were from Nebraska.

Quick update, I bought a nice fixed bail off the forum to put with the Hawley. Now I'm wondering if I should add a nice USMC helmet cover with it (if I could find one). Hope you guys like it!
