St Clair liner, camouflaged

St Clair liner, camouflaged

Quick Overview

Low pressure St Clair type six liner. This liner was found in an attic in the US with many other liners in poor condition a long time ago. Originally the liner had a removable leather chinstrap and cotton suspension with six pairs of double snaps to take the rayon headband but most of it is gone. The painted small yellow SC mark is still present in the dome and a there is also a painted laundry mark on the side. Of special interest is the handpainted two tone camouflage pattern on the liner. Also on the front seems to have been some sort of rank or unit marking but it is quite faint. The liner is bent to of shape and has some cracks but the rarity warrants a place in a collection.
The liner is featured along with its twin (which is in better shape and also for sale) in my M-1 Helmet book (page 239 of the 2007 Limited Edition and page 255 of the 2010 Schiffer Edition). It has been in my collection for a long time but its time for a new home. This a rare opportunity to obtain a liner with handpainted early pattern camouflage. View the many photos.

This is a helmet from the collection.
