In a word, no.I suspect this was made postwar for other European armies.
I quite like it but it's not American.
Thank you for the link...
Haven't ever seen one in that configuration not US regulation issue that is for sure. timothy
It looks like it's a sum of different parts to me. It looks like the rear of a U.S cover and the front of a German-type carrier. I suspect the U.S stamp and date wouldn't be in that position under the hook anyway and it's certainly not the norm to find a date stamp directly below the U.S stamp. The broad strap that folds over the front looks like it comes from something else too! Hmm..
