Picked this up this morning at the flea market. Definitely has some age to it. Had a date on it but can only make out the "19." Couldn't resist...

Very nice find!  These can be found in each branch of service from this maker.

I have the same one and checked for a date but could not find one.  I believe it's WW2

Can you show a close-up of where the date is located? I have one that is identical but never noticed a date...

The markings are on the top seam. Hard to read but says copyright, then a name I can't make out... followed by 19-something. I'm not much help.
