I'm not so sure that the markings on that indicate use by someone in the 90th Infantry Division.  When it comes to identifying or describing a unit, usually it goes company, regiment then division which makes sense because there is only one E company in each regiment. On the other hand, there is at least four or five E companies (if not more) in an infantry division. Each one of those E companies are assigned to a division's infantry regiments, medical, engineer and other support units.  It wouldn't make alot of sense to mark it with a company and division designation because the markings don't indicate which E company from the 90th Division's sub-units the item belongs. So (to me at least) those markings indicate E Company, 90th Infantry Regiment. There was a 90th Infantry Regiment in WW2. It was involved in ski and mountain warfare training and did not go overseas.
