    I hate using that stripper....remember to wash your hands (even if you had gloves on) before you take a restroom break! I learned that the hard way...damn it burns

    Also in the first group of pics I spy a US M1 steel pot is it a front seam?

    Do you think someone put winter camo on it during the war as the second layer?

    always wash my hands after using the stripper the only thing i did was grab my 300 camera with my gloves that still had stripper on them

    the m1 lid in the first pic is a german post war made m1 not US but i do own 2x US M1 lids that are front seamed fixed bale types
