Hawley Fibre Liner for M1 Helmet

You are bidding on a reproduction fiber / fibre liner for the US M1 Helmet. This liner is commonly known as the Hawley fibre liner, which were manufactured by the Hawley Company or subcontracted to the General Fibre Company. I have slightly aged the rayon webbing and the metal washers etc.

I have made several of these liners now; a number of which have been sold via ebay (check out the positive feedback received so far) , I have also sold several outside of ebay. What is on offer is the actual liner you will be bidding on, the M1 helmet is NOT for sale. I spent nearly a £100 perfecting my design, the rolled edges of my repros are paper, and if you choose as I have done you can lightly wear the edge of the liner up for auction to reveal the paper underneath.

NOTE -the rolled edges on my reproductions replicate an original exactly in dimension as you can see in the comparison photos with a original civil defense Hawley ( and also matches the 2nd pattern Hawley which I have in my collection).

The liners are stamped with a "G" in the crown for General fibre co, and are complete with the early war Rayon type webbing.

The liner on offer does not come with a sweatband as these are size specific, but they can be obtained from Normandy . Please bear in mind that the pictures are used with Flash photography,
