    Default Go Navy!

    A couple of USN lids.
    Both are front seam, the one on the right is fixed bale with Westie liner, the one on the left swivel bail with, appropriately, a Seaman liner. Always amazes me the colour variation on these things, notice how the blue paint has faded to blue-green on the fixed bail. That's not easy to pick out from the photographs taken with the available light, but you will just have to trust me that it is more blue than green And, just because its Navy, it does not mean it HAS to be salty!

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Thank you my friend.
    This M1 forum seems to be stalling at the moment, come on people, post your M1's! Dig 'em out, and grab your Box Brownie. We can't have those strange German Militaria collectors running the place you know.

    very nice indeed my friend,how ever i think im out of this M1 malarkey,its all way too much now,what with the dodgy euro clone ever present waiting to raise its ugly head,and anything that comes along half decent then you will need an off shore account to pay for the dam thing.its a shame when collecting stops being a hobbie and fun,and becomes a cut throat business and all that./the prices that collectors will pay now is so O.T.T,that mr average joe blogs does'nt even get a sniff,anyway enough of my whingey whiney ways,dave

    C'mon, Dave. They are out there. Example:
    I took a punt on this one on fleabay today, lid is ball and claw, minimal description by the seller but it is the liner I am interested in in this case. I did not ask the seller for more photos of the inside of the liner as he may have posted them on fleabay. Worth a punt for 30.00 all in. Could be a clone, who knows..... Watch this space.

    Best Regards,

    ok andy i get the point,poor pics and description can lead to a lucky buy,but these are seldom and far between,the vast majority still have decent pics and correct description,hence will usually loose out on most things unless my pockets become deeper than wookie hole my friend.dave

    Yes they are indeed. You will need to have an eagle eye and have your saved searches on fleabay set to newly listed, and buy it now.
    It happens rarely, but I did pick up a complete Westinghouse liner WITH a green buckle chinstrap for 40.00.
    Oh, it seems I am giving away my secrets!
