This suspension is held tightly within the M-1 helmet liner by rivets and a series of black painted triangular "A" washers (17 rivets). The three upper suspension bands are joined together with the correct OD green string. This way the wearer could adjust the fit.A-yokes OD style with the buckles are intact. The shell chin strap and leather liner's chin strap are missing.
The liner was manufactured by Westinghouse Company and is maker's marked with a''W'' in a circle on the inside dome. The name of the soldier is hand written on the canvas band. I still rate the helmet as in very good condition and it could be great addition to your collection.
