Before buying, measure your head with a flexible meter around horizontally above the ears and find out the size of the head (this will be the size of your helmet-liner). If you choose the size of the liner to match the size of your helmet, then it will fit your helmet, but not necessarily your head. The Germans had 5-6 sizes of helmets, each size was intended only for two adjacent head sizes. In other words, it is impossible to pull the ET62 helmet on the head which is 58 cm around. Impossible, you'd put in there any liner...

Split-pins and chin-strap are not included in our liner set. They are sold separately. We offer what is seen in the photo in this product.

The M35 and M40 liners are interchangeable, both types of liners were installed in M35 and M40 helmets without any system (considering only that the steel liners began to be produced in 1940, and production of aluminum ones was finished that year, and their stocks were used only).

This is very nice copy of the German helmet liner. The sizes and materials are carefully selected. Galvanized steel bands, 1.5 mm thick leather, formed in the shape of a sphere, brown (sometimes beige) felt, stamps with the size and name of the manufacturer (A.W.N. BERLIN 1941). Earrings are steel, bent from a wire. Springs are painted gray. The skin is a light cream color. There is a stamp of the manufacturer Anton Kreisel Bielefeld (the last word is a city in Germany) and the leather production date is 9-40 (September 1940) on the inside of the leather part. A stamp with a size in a circle (for example, 58) is on one of the petals.

The liner of the 1931/40 type was assembled from steel hoops, since in 1940 the Germans reduced price of their helmet and its liner. In particular, they excluded aluminum, valuable for aviation and ammunition, by donating the weight of the product.
