Scott, I am a bit confused by Texasbufcan's answer as well. Your liner was manufactured post WWII using a Westinghouse mold. The double stamps occurred when Westinghouse acquired molds from CAPAC, Firestone, etc after they stopped production. Westinghouse then made liners, post WWII, under the Micarta name. Your liner is a post war manufactured Westinghouse(made on an original Westinghouse mold) with factory installed Olive Drab #7(green) webbing. It has not been rewebbed. As to when the Olive Drab #3(khaki) sweatband and nape strap were added? It's anyones guess.

Firestone still was making liners after WWII and Korea. I have a liner that came with my new helmet that reads 62 F (firestone F) 108  It's a P55 High dome liner.

Has anyone seen this liner stamp before? I haven't. I can't find any info on it. Came with a Parish shell.

Hi, I have an M1 tortoise shell helmet liner (not the later orange colour) with a US 25 marking on the inside crown and the later harness (Blind Guild), any idea of its manufacture. It came in a Schlueter shell

Likely been re manufactured?

Thanks

Hi

US 25 is consistent with a US Government mark found on liners made between 1961-1969. They made around 70 molds and leased them out to companies. This variation is more than likely a Westinghouse manufactured liner. 
Any markings on the liner webbing? Is there a number stamped anywhere on the inside of the liner possibly near the inside edge?

Something like this?

No, no other markings inside the liner, I have attached a photo of the webbing details. The liner is in good condition however a sloppy fit in the WW2 Schlueter 426A? S
