    I found this M42 and I am interested in opinions of others. Is it post-war Czechoslovak reissue (black paint) with wartime liner ring and post-war leather (or late war pig-skin) ?

    Any feedback is appreciated !

    Thanks !

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Liner definitely looks post war imo. Green felt looks ok though?

    I know that most Czechoslovak reissues were relined with 4 tongue liner and majority had larger rivets.

    Liner looks to be pigskin and the size in a circle is correct also.
    I wouldn't right it off just yet.

    Thanks - my thoughts exactly.
    Also the marks where the shields were make me wonder regarding the paint.

    Calling all experts :-)
