    Looks good to me also, I have seen this method of attaching the filter quite a few times before. I'm not too sure if it was implemented at a certain time during the war or it was just something done to certain batches.

    Thanks

    Its difficult to say, I can't definitely say yes or definitely say no.... one explanation as to why it has this type of clip instead of the usual wire is that the filter may have been replaced for some reason, and it would be easier to put one of these clips on than to attempt to re-attach wire.

    Thanks

    I think you have a point.I dont think that this clip can make the difference.This MkIV maybe has first the brown-yellowish filter(Regarding this,do you know if this filter used during ww2?).Many Thanks for your time and help
