Hello,  My photos don't do justice to the backing color.  It is not bright red.  It is a very deep scarlet/burgundy color.  The stitching on front and back is zig-zag.  According to the 1912 regs the chevrons should be 3/8" wide x 3 1/2".  These are 5/15"  x 3 1/4" (unless you add the exposed backing in which case they are 3 1/2").  How can you tell whether or not these are WW1 or later?  Thanks for your help.

Look WW2 to me, but not an expert on MC chevrons.
