WWII Green buckle leather chin strap for M1 liner sold for $160.+ wow.


Recommended Posts

I agree totally, these sets should remain together. It's pretty sad to think of a soldier's album or grouping of any kind for that matter, being divided up solely for gain.

So I thought maybe the chin strap that sold for $160.00 might have been a one time price but there is another from the same seller ending in 7hrs that is currently at $163.50.

This one has a rip so Doyer's minty ones should be worth $225.00+ going by that math.

Just ebay madness. I remember seeing them hit over $200 years ago. 

 

I think $265 for a used one was discussed here maybe 6, 7 years ago?

Justin I thought your mention of these hitting $200.00 and up was high until I saw this one that ended yesterday that proved your point.  Ebay madness is correct.

Some tragedy I just saw on an ebay listing.  Helmet was listed for $75 and I was about to jump on it for the nice chinstrap but then I saw the rest of the pictures.  Seller carelessly destroyed history just to get a few pictures of a completely uninteresting liner.  Shame.
