    I like the dent. The cracks look like the type on my beater M1 shell. They were sealed up with welds. I wonder if that was a common thing - the stress fractures? They look to be in almost the same places as mine. NH

    I actually got it from ebay along with one of the other rear seamed in the picture and an additional westinghouse liner altogether for $150

    The other liner was a ww2 westinghouse but probably painted black in the kw. and the pot was a nice late rear seamed with original paint. The liner was missing the sweatband,strap,nape all that remain was the khaki suspension. I'll post pics in a bit.
