Standard army Mk2 which had an flash on the side that has been scraped off,nice early woven net is just about holding on.
Dated 1938 & made by JSS, this would have been one of the first Mk2's that the army would have received. As from 1937 the army was being equipped with the Mk1*,so from 1938 both were being made at the same time.
If the Mk1* had an magnetic steel rim they were stamped with an painted M to donate magnetic.
This early Mk2 has been stamped with an SS, to donate non magnetic "stainless steel" rim, this was only done for a short period.
