    The elastic top strap on WW2 models is approx. 10mm wide. Whereas post war are around 15mm wide.

    Thanks for clarifying. I should have said : wartime elastic = narrow. Post-war elastic = wide.

    Greg is correct. Thin crossguard = post-war.........

    Those are great reference sites, relicz,

    I learned mine is a mold number 2 third pattern with a 13 acceptance mark on it.

    Thanks for posting,
