    Default Captain Casey's M1

    As I'm off work with Something Particularly Nasty at the moment and have plenty of spare time, I thought I'd post this one for comments. It's a "been there" McCord fixed bail, missing a chinstrap, with a Westinghouse liner. The heatstamp has been worn off so I cant date it exactly. The liner sweatband is well used, so the leather strip has worn away. I took plenty of photos of this one as I quite like the old girl. I may have posted the odd shot of this one before, but I think she deserves a decent post of her own.

    Your thoughts are welcomed.

    Best Regards,

    Andy.

    Hello Rod. Yes, silver with a green painted border on the liner, and white on the pot.
    Those green buckle chinstraps are selling for stupid money, supply and demand I suppose as they become rarer. Watch out for the aged fakes appearing soon on eBay.What I have found that they are cheaper to buy when sold with a liner, although those are getting rarer too. The last one I picked up was on a Westie and cost 40.00, crazy.
    Thanks mate, I should be OK soon.

    Best Regards,
