Default Comparison of two late M1D cheek pads

On the left in the pic is an original USGI M1D cheek pad that I bought last spring from a respected member of this forum; it's MRT-dated May 1976. Note the spelling out of the month, the four-digit year, and the font size. The two screws in this package are loose and rattling around.

On the right is the USGI M1D cheek pad that I just received from the CMP in the e-store order I placed during Manic Monday. It's MRT-dated 10-75; Note the numerical abbreviation of the month, the two-digit year, and the smaller font size. The two screws in this package are in the small yellow envelope at the bottom of the plastic bag.

I thought these differences were interesting, and wanted to pass on the info to you folks

Mine, from the CMP, has May 1976 on it. The May is spelled out.

I missed these when they went on sale. Can anyone tell me what they went for? Are there any more still available? Thanks.

They are sold out. The used ones sold for 40.00. They sold out very fast.

I received some marked May 76. Was really hoping for the 1952 marked ones. Anyone want to trade?

They are two different contracts, with two different contractors.
If I can get some large photos of the pads and the contract numbers, I will identify them in the GCA Journal.

Default Photo links sent to Bill

Bill ,

I sent (or at least tried to) send you some links to the cheek pads that spell out the May 1976.
Best Regards

Here is one of the pics.
