American M1 Front Seam, Fixed Bail ,Netted Combat

Ive had this one on my shelf for some time but with some new additions to my German combat lids it needs a new home. The front seam fixed bail shell has nearly all its original rough drab green finish exept for the crown area were the net has a hole, most probably from being placed on the ground throught its combat life. The rest of the net is in very nice condition.No fracture stress cracks to the shell. The Westinghouse marked liner has most of its original paint finish and the inside webbing is in used but complete condition, webbed straps have slight wear around the bales from use.Leather liner chinstrap is loose as i didnt want to damage it from being over the front lip. This example would appear to have never been messed with and in what i would call ''sleeper'' condition.
