Good evening gents,
I would like to submit this M1 for the opinion of the membership please. I have my opinion but don't want to point either way. Suffice it to say that I would like to know what others think!
The liner is what I take for the darker smoother early olive drab and the shell has a low heatstamp.
It has the patina of age for sure but very little of wear. The drawstring looked wrong to me and like what I at first thought was para cord but is not and it passes a burn test. What do you lot reckon to what appears to be an early fixed bale example?
