    Hello, if an Ssh40 is not date-stamped, it's generally assumed to be post-war unless proven otherwise. The red star is definitely not factory, could have been applied any time by anyone. Kevin

    I agree with Kevin. What is photo 4? Inside the liner?

    Hi Nick,

    Do you mean the stamping on the liner cushion?

    It seems to me as though the lining is postwar?
