    Love these lids. I'm looking to get one in a similar condition, right after I get a WWII era M1, so I can say my WWII collection is complete, I'll move on to WWI It's a vicious cycle!

    How much do these beauties go for?

    Congratulation and welcome to a new addiction.

    Seems like the last several I have come across were Si66's. Sometimes it comes in streaks.

    I usually see smaller sizes about - 62 and 64 - and decided to get this one
    because it was a bit larger than most that crop up.........

    As has been said on other threads, most military items are not getting any cheaper.

    The ones I saw with rivetted liner bands and some leather padding remaining were
    around $550, and up to $1,200 for a nice complete lid. There were also a few
    with what looked like rather recent camo paint jobs, and I guess it's like
    anything we collect, you have to be on your guard for fakes.........
