all looks good to me for a late war M-1 set up
In my opinion it looks good so far.
Liner and shell are in great shape.
Go for it.
i should think this is unissued stock judging by the condition of the cork,not even severe scuff marks,rust staining usually through postwar storage,on the other hand could have been issued to non front line combat personnell,very nice but i personally dont like'em crisp,nice and salty is what i expect from 70 years + age,regards dave.
