    I think it looks way too clean and untouched for a WW2 liner, the A posts have no sign of age unless theyve been repainted, the leather headpiece looks new, the tape straps look new with no discolouration , i dont get a good feeling about it

    Thanks! I put a max bid for $25 even though it is post war. I recently bought an m-1 fixed mail from 1942 for $9 with no liner so im looking for a liner.

    Im not saying its a post war liner, theres something not quite right about it in my opinion, its either a completely unissued item but then why the name inside or it could be a totally restored item with replacement interior

    I totally agree with you. It probably was issued and never used.

    Looks like it has the MSA stamp, which would make it WW2 produced. But, the shell has had a repaint, with a incorrect for the period sand/silica texture to it. WW2 liners were only painted, without any textures. And it hasn't been worn in a lid since the repaint, as there is still paint on the outside surface of the rivets without any scuffs or scrapes. The only thing that raises any flags are the rivet faces on the A washers. They don't appear to be original being a rust color compared to the original finish on the washers, which that, compared with the repaint, make me lean towards it having had the webbing replaced. Could be wrong though.
