    chinstrap is wrong, liner is sus, and it looks as if its been re-pinned

    I agree the leather liner is postwar,you can see where the little washers were on the tongues where cord went thru , rgds Dave

    Well, i havent given up yet on this one. I think the conclusion about the liner is pretty silly. What makes you think that it's postwar just because of the look of washers? But i don't know :/


    Thanks for your answers.

    Hi, at the end of the day if you are happy with it well thats good but you asked for opinions and we gave them ,they are just our opinions , you may get more but i wouldnt hold your breath on that liner, rgds Dave
