    it all looks to be good the liner is a nice early Nam era version the shell & straps looked good as for the cover there is a way of dating it from the from the stamp on the brown side. the only thing i would do is remove the liner chin strap as this a European made version & not US but apart from that all looks good & for a fair price

    because its a post war European made version made of a thicker & lighter coloured leather, US made version were of a dark sometimes reddish brown colour also the leather was allot thinner in thickness.

    see pics below these are the type of chin straps you would need to go with your NAM liner if you wanted to replace it.
