Being a shell 68, it would probably fit a size 59-60 head right?

That vent looks ugly as hell, and the rolled rim reminds me of repros I've seen. But yes a 68 shell would fit both 60 and 61 cm liners

The vent in this original look bulgy as well but the hole is cleaner...then the repro looks similar as list above....could this maybe be a very well aged repro perhaps?

Agreed. The rolled edge is far too wobbly, the vents look a bit clumsy and the stamped numbers look a bit sharp from what I've see of originals over the years.

And the split pins look massive - before reading what size it was I thought it was 60 or 62 shell which was making standard sized pins look huge.

Yes, I was refering to the one with the bullet hole in it as bulgy, just the pictures were posted in the wrong order, the first one is clearly a repro and I was using it to show the roughness of a repro.

Thanks for help guys, the liner and paint job looked but but I had my doubts for the same reason...good thing I didn't buy it yet.

The rivets look like the ones on the Czech re issue ones you see around so wonder if the liner is also Czech?
