If you look closely at the sling marked Boyt, there should be a date under the name.

yess 42 i think... but i don't think the two pieces belong together. One of the metal endings has brass pins, the other hasn't.

I thought brass was early WWII and then switched to steel later WWII

The adjustment hooks and hardware on early M1907 Slings were made of brass, while the later WWII examples had steel hardware with an oxide finish

1907 sling was adopted in 1936, the switch from brass to steel started in 1942 but there was overlap as supplies of brass was continued to be used up
