Listed on Ebay now but I cannot copy and paste anything on my Kindle. Perhaps another member can get the entire listing and photos. Thank you.

Item # is 263133560817. This was recently painted, certainly not done 65 years ago (at the latest).

Basic color of liner looks olive green, not OD.

Notice how uneven all the edges of whatever is painted - the stripes and the Constab insignia. These were all hand painted by German artists. No crackling or other signs of age. Note description says that this is an "early one, as later ones were done with decals" is ludicrous. He is confused by decals of unit DIs being applied c. 1950, by many US Army units, not just Constabulary.

Seller has ano return policy. I queried him and informed him it was reprod and his claim re: early + decal. He has not gotten back to me re: repro concern.

Looks like a post war Westinghouse/capac liner from the early 1950's

Thanks. Still no response from seller re: validity of liner.

Constab lasted until Dec 52......

I saw this as well since I'm looking for one and decided to stay far far away.
