The webbing and rivets look odd, could be a European clone.

Thanks for the reply Jerry, the liner itself is a Firestone marked item but perhaps ''cloned'' at some point

Woke up this morning and had a thoughtwondering if this could be an Argentine clone from the Falklands conflict Now the question would be the front seam shell, would a lid from the 80's be in such relic condition if left out in the elements for 40 odd years?

Argentine-made M1 clones had a longer visor than their American counterparts and were back seam. But Argentina bought American surplus M1's as well, both front and back seam. Same with liners, Argentine- and American-made ones were used. I'm afraid it's almost impossible to tell with the liner in this condition.

Nic, cheers for the info, must admit that out of the 15 Argentine lids i use to own that were brought back from the Falklands id say that all were US m1 produced shells with over 50% being front seam examples. Now when it comes to liners thats a diffrent kettle of fish, most having quite a bit of reworking when it came to suspension systems and a few having what i belive would be Argentine produced liners from top to bottom. An ID perhaps will be down to those unvoided ''A'' washers and the material used for the straping. Wish id taken more notice of the ones i use to own before letting go of them
