I am not big on the "Ghoulfactor" when it comes to collecting so I definately did not buy this for that reason, it was only after I recieved it that I examined the liner... It seems to have a splinter through the outside, then through the liner, and the liner has been discolored and distored by what I assume are bodily fluids. It was a Barn find in France and is stamped to the 1. Jäger Battalion. The Chin strap is also very interesting.
