It was covered by a similar coloured cloth stretched over its outer surface and tucking under the rim into a bevel, a key characteristic of all Hawley liners.

M1 steel helmets were manufactured through September A second US production run of approximately one million helmets was made in — The M1 was phased out during the s in favor of the PASGT helmet ,  which offered increased ergonomics and ballistic protection. No distinction in nomenclature existed between wartime front seams so-called due to the location of the seam on the helmet’s brim and post war, or rear seam, shells in the United States Army supply system, hence World War II shells remained in use until the M1 was retired from service.
