Default liner of the N. African Adrian

And here is its liner (a mid-war example using multiple pieces of leather).

Notice that the helmet was re-painted a yellow mustard color after the liner was removed, meaning that the inside of the dome is also painted. The liner was then replaced inside the helmet. Only one of the chinstrap prongs has been broken off.

Some of the paint can be seen rubbed on the liner.

There is no chinstrap.

Along the seams of the brim, you can see some of the rust that makes me wonder if this isn't a fake paint job with accelerated rust. I'm just not sure on this one.
