For the most authentic museum quality restored original M1C Korean War era M1 infantry helmet liner for sale – look no further!

The "Electric Strawberry" MP Liner used by the military police unit protecting Marilyn Monroe during her USO tour in Korea.

This is a totally restored original US M1 helmet liner with accessories that has been converted to represent the Korean War M1 infantry model worn by the US Army units during the Korean War. This M1 liner restoration has been conducted with painstaking detail, such as the use of United Carr marked hardware on the liner nape strap and, more importantly, the use of actual shuttle loomed 20/2 mercerized yarn olive drab #3 or #7 HBT suspension webbing. All of which were made on the only functional original WWII era shuttle looms in existence.

At Top Pots, we are not "reproducing" WWII webbing... we are actually remaking it... on three WWII era Saurer Shuttle Looms with the original cams!

So, if you are looking for a US WWII Korean War swivel bale helmet with the most authentic Type II Mil-Spec 530 11 row weave chain-pattern and Herring Bone Twill suspension webbing, this is your liner. This particular liner represents the standard model, which would have been used in combat operations such as Inchon. This is simply the best Korean War M1 infantry helmet liner for re-enactors, air-soft clubs and collectors made exclusively by Top Pots.
