I just acquired this one last week, out of an old collection of mainly US stuff. It is a front seam swivel bale M1 with brass hardware. I have no history on it, but the camo pattern, which I think is unique, has brown, black dark green, and gray splotches. It is the gray, whick looks like shipboard gray paint, that makes me think this is a WWII Pacific theater pot. Any thoughts or comments will be appreciated. Hope you like it, Jim G.
