    Thanks I thought so too, it's a great liner regardless of the authenticity of the MP paint job

Like last week I was ill and at home and from my window I saw my other neighbour cleaning out his house for sale and on the porch there was a liner . So I quickly got dressed and went downstairs. I was amazed it was named to a SSGT of the 83 infantry division( ohio division) but sadly it wasn't for sale which I respected.
    Anyway let me get back to my liners, does the 1955 paint job decrease value (if I may ask) because I paid 90$ for it

    Now thats a tough question to answer so to speak,it depends on who the collector is,if its a ww2 mainstream type then they would want original olive drab wartime factory paint not postwar,but if you collect items that relay to specific units and timeframe then this is there cup of tea.but as the wartime collector dominates the M1 scene i would say slightly less value but also less desirable overall,this is only my opinion and at auction could still fetch the same as a wartime example...........
