    Different makers made the same items, with very minor differences. I have 25 and all vary ever so slightly
    I cant read the date in the photo, they are not clear, but i tend to think WW2 era.
    Hope that helps

    They most certainly did make these during WW2, some i have are dated 1940,1941,1944 etc
    Others only have codes such as 0/06760039. I have tried to add photos on this tablet computer. First shows a date of 1940, the other two in the background have code numbers
