Unused transitional Inland liner


Recommended Posts

Hi all, although I certainly can appreciate combat worn helmets and liners, unused items appeal to me just a little bit more. A case in point is this unworn Inland liner. Imo it's a great time capsule showing the condition these were in when they were issued to GI's.

The leather chinstrap has a faint S stamp which leads me to believe it is either made by Scholl Mfg of Sun Shoe Mfg and It has a brown coated United Carr rivet.

That's a beauty. I'm thinking I should share my unissued pieces from my collection. I even have a stone mint CAPAC with the packing paper. I've been meaning to add a minty Inland as someone pit one up for sale here recently, but alas, currently under budgetary constraints :(
