    I think your leaving me in your wake for exotic post-war Liners,and it's simply not fair.!Boo Hoo..........





    I think we stand alone on post-war M1 production as most collectors concentrate on ww2 variants.


    I would like to see more interest generated within the collecting field as its such a huge area and talking point.!
    I have you to thank Jake on collecting post war M1s you have definitely helped me to raise my game and knowledge on them. I totally agree that this a very neglected area of collecting. I will be honest I do love a good WW2 lid and liner but the variations in the post war models I find to be a lot more interesting as it's never a straight forward area of collecting. I hope the interest doesn't peak any time soon as I would like to collect as many as I can before the inevitable silly prices kick in

    Hey Jake think I found a duck cotton variant airborne liner. The seller tells me it's a Firestone with a 68 date and being offered for 60 euros. What do think mate is it worth it?

    Ok only 3 companies produced this duck cotton Liners,Pat-Ric/Westinghouse/Marmac and all between july 64 and may 65,so the date and maker is wrong,but there is the white NO1 stamped on inside next to female snap so its a Westinghouse 14 sept 1964 DSA-1-6540,go for it cos there ain't gonna be another one along anytime soon,only 110'000 units produced between all 3 companies in total,hence now i know why there so scarce,should have read my book better first time around Lol,good luck on this venture,i would if it were me.!
