Hello all,
I picked this set up today, they are unused in the original box, but no markings. Do you all think WWI or WWII? Just trying to narrow it down. I know they made a lot of stuff from aluminum in WWI. Thanks for input in advance.....Posted Image

They do say US Army, I meant to say the box or rings weren't marked otherwise.

That is only a nine star flag with eleven stripes, it MUST predate the revolution. Just Kidding. Very nice item with the original box. Thanks for posting it. I would date it to the WW I era also.
