    Hi are these your pics or the sellers?its the chinstraps that give it away normally but as the pics are not so good its difficult to say either way,being an M1C they must have 2 sets of stitching one either side of the swivel bale but in the pics on the long strap the inner stitching looks the wrong colour and looks hand sewn,but both sets should be machine stitched as this is how McCords done them,sorry cant be of more help.............Jake.
    With Regards Jake.
