This WWII MSA liner has been found in a VN era M1.

It is in very good condition and complete of all components even the leather chinstrap, which has been temporarily removed to be "Pecardized"

Your opinion please...

If the chinstrap is in good shape, I really would not Pecard's it. It has survived the past 60-70 years like that, and unless it is on the verge of breaking, it probably will last more time into the future. However, the paintjob on that liner appears to be postwar? Also, John Jacob is an EXTREMELY common name, so I doubt it is the man mentioned above, there are 22 records for WWII and definitely plenty more for the postwar. Nice liner, though! The fact that it is in a VN era shell, however, suggests it was used in the period? :think:

The chinstrap was dry and bent being on the liner for long time, decided to use pecard to avoid breaks in the leather, now is in really better shape, will be reinstalled soon. Usually I leave mint cond. leather items alone. btw the helmet was found in Germany.
