    i would not trust the seller that this is original with such poor pictures M-2's are highly faked as they command such high prices.

    Hi Nick,
    I'm told your the man in the know.
    If you say NO then thats good enough for me.
    What sort of price would you expect a genuine one to come in at.

    I can see the pics now.Try asking for good clear close ups of where the bales are welded on, inside and out.
    Does it have any solid provenance?

    Donít know what to make of this one.
    I donít like the lid chin straps the pattern looks more horizontal than parallel with no ware whatís so ever and the colour of the stitching looks odd though that may be something to do with the picture.
    And perhaps someone might correct me but surely with an early liner like this it would have cast buckles instead of wire buckles on the ĎAí straps for a westy.
    Also the inside of the chin cup has a lot of ware compared to the rest of the liner.
    The fact you didnít get detailed pictures of the vital parts that might have determined originality would make me wary. Or the heat stamp!
    Are you sure this guy is a m1 collector?
    Just my 2 cents
