    If you do try to bend it back, do it slowly Nick and watch for any cracks starting to appear on the inside stop if that happens. I work with brass and copper every day I think it will bend back with no problems.
    Just my advice remember donít come crying to me if it snaps lol.
    I wonder how Andy got on with his operation ?
    Best regards

    Nice price for fixed loop!Pity the name on the chinstrap is blurry might of got a hit on NARA?
    As for that bent buckle, personally i'd leave it as its bent double it would almost certainly break if you tried to straighten it...Ill wager they were cold stamped so that will make them hard to start with unless they were then annealed?

    cheers guys im still in two minds about attempting anything as i can be a clumsy at times but Ive been told that it can be done as theres no existing fractures or cracks & seems to have been only bent over once ?

    @NCA it is a shame about the stamp i was hoping to find out something but no matter how i look at it i just cant make any of it out.

    Nick, Have you tried contacting that guy on USMF?He developed a program for searching NARA using just the last four digits of the number.I think he gets about 20-30 likely hits..Might be worth a try?To me it looks like 'Kirkendall'..
