    Well i like it Marty either way,i know during ww2 many Fixed looped shells were used with Airborne Liners however i don't think this practice continued into Nam,so its most likely a put together but its all original US parts,to note this example has had the field-issued T1 hook attached instead of standard wartime replacement straps,Firestone will be 64 or 67,usually the later as these are seen constantly,if its the earlier date then its quite rare,also to note it carries the rarer deep cut Mitchell by unknown government contractor,64-66.despite the fact that deep cuts were not made standard until 68,nice set Bud get it.............
    See Marty, I told you that I know nothing about these great lids ( but I hope I am learning!). L eon.
