I received a Capac liner recently with green webbing and the numbers 22 and 51 stamped above and below the Capac mold logo leading me to believe it was made in 1951. However, it has o.d. green "A" washers which were used in early WW2 liners. Later in WW2, the washers were brass and during Korea, they were painted black. Any reason as to why green washers are on a Korea era Capac? No it does not appear to be added later and can't see why anyone would do so.

Maybe the washers were overstock from WWII and they used those instead?

Not that uncommon, I have 4 or 5 Korean War era liners with OD green A washers.
