Hi people, Bought this M1 on a wim a couple of years ago as it was fairly cheap , I suppose the thing that caught my eye was that it was Front seam (WW2 ?) & fixed Bale (WW2 ?). The liner is a Firestone (Knapstrap missing) in fairly minty condition which probably isn't original to the shell with a probable post war chin strap. The outer shell as said is fixed bale front seam with machine stitched chin straps that have been repaired by riveting (Argie style ?). There appears to be NO heatstamp, previous owners have rubbed down the paint in the usual area & i can't see one else where. any opinions please gentlemen, thanks in advance ,cheers Paul.
