I'm trying to see if I mistaken something, but it looks like one chinstrap bale is a type M40 and the other is a type 35?... Anyone else see that?
Unless the one towards the top (picture) is just a bit ground down?... I cant tell....
Now the picture of the liner (last one) is gone?
Hi , it looks like a good one to me , a nice example. Leon.

Thanks for your input Leon.
Looks good to me too. If the bales are different that is OK for a reinforced alu liner band. Not common but fine.
Thanks and to my old eye they look the same. I will check with a loop tonight.
I like it, nice decal without the border
I thought the "ribbed" chinstraps were frowned upon and considered post war ( I know equipment straps and zelt ones are )
