Description
 
Rare! Original US WWII Experimental T19E1 Tank Crew Helmet Liner With Chinstrap- A very nice "high pressure" helmet liner, designed to be used with the T19E1 tankers helmet, which was never actually put into production. These liners are quite rare, and this one is an exceptional example. Many were used for training post war, which subjected the liners to quite a bit of wear and tear. There were no replacement parts, so they could not be repaired. This example is in excellent condition, and has the original leather chin strap mounts, as well as the M1 Helmet style liner chin strap. The interior is fully intact and shows light wear. The adjustment system is somewhat unique, using sliders that go over a metal fitting with a tab that locks into the leather of the liner. The shell for these helmets was a modified M1 design, with the lower front removed, so that goggles and earphones could be used. We only have one available. In excellent condition.
