I do like the first pattern 51s, but I would only really be happy with a minty 48.
I keep hoping to hear somthing from somewhere, cash at the ready

Hello, I have the parka liner that's on the right side of the picture. This isn't my picture I just found it on the internet, I can't get any of my pics to upload since they're all too large. Does anyone know what is the name/nomenclature for this parka liner? Is it the liner for the for the M1948 parka? I've also seen it called or related to 1943, so I'm not sure if it was from WWII or Korean War era. If it's for the M1948, then it's the liner that has the wolf fur trim versus the outer shell of the parka (?). Any help you can give with the noun/nomenclature, picture descritption of the shell it goes with and any history is appreciated. Thanks.
It's what's known as a 10th mountain division parka I think. The pattern date on these is 1943
The brown alpaca pile liner on the right is worn under it.
As far as I'm aware there is no fur on the shell, the left one in your picture is the shell with the right pictured pile liner in it, the fur is only on the pile liners not the shells.
I've actually got one of these shells coming in the next few weeks funnily enough, mine is dated 1948 and is in unissued condition, I'll be looking for a pile liner for it next month
By all accounts they are a nice parka

But it's still nice bud, if your looking to get rid of yours and its in good condition, including the fur, let me know, as I will be looking to get one for my shell soon, I'd be interested if its a large one.
