    That's a really nice shell. You should get a matching liner for it.

    Nevermind, I just read the 1952 liner part. Still, get a nice WWII issue liner. : )

    a possible reason it has a 1952 liner is that it may have been reissued during the Korean war.

    that's a very nice salty liner i personally would leave the shell & liner together as i think they've been together for some time & it would be a shame to split them up now.
