An older posting of some down n dirty ways of seeing faded dates on gear. The methods work for ink stamped, painted dates and some metal stamps.  Check out An awesome way to see old dates on WW2, WW1 field gear, started by THAT GUY,  FIELD & PERSONAL GEAR - U.S. Militaria Forum.at: http://www.usmilitar...ww1-field-gear/

 

This method can be tweaked with some success to be used on old painted on wood IDs, metal casting and stamping that have been worn with time (or on purpose), its just a matter of letting the Sun do its heating thing and trying to see the results.
