If this is 1918 or before I'm going to put in a 1918 Haversack.  If it is do you have a matching spoon and the leather case they fit in you might sell.?  Thanks Richard

WWI were solid handles this one is post war because of the cut out handle.I am trying to find out if the style of stamping of the US logo will determine WWII or newer. But yours looks like a WWII issued fork.
