As it was told previously, it comes from a complete helmet i have. That helmet was fully dismounted by previous owners... and as each other parts are fully originals, i wanted an opinion about this pad as a part. But it come from a fully complete ET68 helmet.

Your photo shows a late-war liner with black rubber. The original poster is showing an earlier type of rubber pad - the type seen in about 1940/41.

Thanks for the reply Steve.
Yes, I know. The picture was showed to understand what I wanted to mean.

The only reply received shows that I had to be wrong
However, even early pads are imo made from tighter foam, with very small holes quite near each other.
Some pics from German paratroopers Vol 2.

Those are all pads from DD M38s - a different kind again. I am talking about the type found for a short period after these . See below.
