Smile WTS: WWII M1 helmet and liner

Up for sale is one of my old M1 helmets that I've acquired over the years. I've had this pot since I was a kid and it's time to find it a new home. The pot is original finish as far as I can tell with very course cork texturing and solid paint. It's a rear seamed model made with what looks like holdover stainless rim material. No stress cracks that I can find, not even any started so it's solid. Swivel bale with replacement, new production, US made chin strap. Marked under the brim with what looks to be 1250C. Research indicates that anything under 1300 makes it WWII production.
Liner is also WWII and appears to be either a Seaman Paper Co. or International Molded Plastics. It's so small I can't really tell. All webbing is original except the leather sweatband which is a US made, correct reproduction. I added a post war, USGI leather chinstrap to round out the "restoration". In the pictures you see the helmet on the left. You'll actually get the liner that's in the helmet on the right. I swapped liners after research indicated that the liner was in fact correct, WWII vintage. Sorry if there's any confusion. I'll offer the WWII helmet on the right with post-war liner at a later date. I need to do some work on that pot.
Anyway, please PM me with specific questions or for me to email additional photos.
I'm asking $225 firm (which is a good price if you look around) plus shipping. I'll try to ship USPS priority if it is okay with you. I've had good results with them. I'll accept USPS money order or personal check.

Still available.
There are no decals on the liner. It's clean. In fact, it has no finish on it at all. It's bare fiberglass. It's actually kind of pretty in it's own way.

Okay, $200 shipped before it goes to E#$y. Yuck.

I'll be selling the other helmet soon for only $140 shipped since it has a post war liner. It's a nice one too...
