    Well, the liner is dated 68 and the shell looks to be from a similar era. Some of the real experts should stop by and add some more info!

    Hi Michael.. if taken with a phone the photos need to be taken in landscape..not portrait ..so the phone needs to be horizontal.. also check your pics are landscape before up loading ..as sometimes the phone " flips" when taking details photos!! you can also rotate to fix upside down pics in the edit photo option before you upload.. hope this helps..

    The shell is of the low dome type produced from 1965 onwards,the Liner is a Westinghouse also of the same time frame,both look in really nice overall condition..............
    With Regards Jake.

    No worries on missing that. I miss stuff all the time that is way more obvious than that date! Besides, these liners are so easy to slap into another shell, its always worth looking in too. Luckily most of the time a general era of the shells construction is a one look thing with even a little experience.
