Have had this one for a few months now by way of a trade. Nice repaired M2 with original straps and Westinghouse para liner IDed to Lt. Joseph Shelton of the 505th PIR.

His ASN is on the shell and name is on the sweatband, which I couldnt get a good pic of because Im having some camera issues. I added the Airborne chin cup for display.
