    Default M1 with 82nd Airborne decal.

    Heres an M1 i've had for a while.Late war front seam, swivel loop, green webbing chinstraps and a Korea era Westinghouse liner.The net appears to have been on it a while going by the fading.As for the 82nd decal?..Looks original to me..aged, wear, rust coming through.Its not going to set the world on fire but i like it.

    Hi NCA but that decal looks like a transfer?or is it my eyes,never known ww2 vintage to use these type of decal,only brush painted type,these were introduced in the 50's sometime i think,could either be korean original or a mock up in more recent years,still a nice lid+liner materegards Dave.

    Thanks.I thought its about time i posted some of my M1's, i dont just collect Brit lids!Almost certain the lid and liner is post war usage..no idea on the 82nd logo though.
    I always thought a decal is a transfer?
