Matt.....just curious. Have you ever seen a fixed bail that wasn’t a front seam?

I have not, seams moved late in 1943 just after the transition to swivels (as I understand it) so there are occasionally some swivel bail front seams during the changeover, but can't say I've ever seen a fixed bail rear seam.
