    I highly doubt it to be an ss most likely an honest army that someone messed around with to enhance the value or for some other reason

    I would like to see the luft shell. If the liner is original to the shell I would probably leave it. I hate to to mess with split pins. Plus, they belong together. If it were mine, I might leave the liner on and try to refurb back to original as per the outside. Hard to say without having it in hand and not seeing the luft shell. Q68's are among my top favorite lids. They seem to fit just right.
