    I've read through all this thread and can't find mention anywhere of the standard stainless steel rim,if your shell has no stainless steel rim then it is more than likely post WW2,early WW2 was only stainless steel,front seam,fixed then swivel bails with some crossovers due to failures etc and late war rear seam,swivel bail but as far as I'm aware all WW2 shells had a stainless rim edging,these of course ran out into the korean war with sometimes period liners but sometimes WW2 liners as has been covered here already.I cannot see any stainless scratches or what have you on your shell rim but do notice some rusty scratches on the rim making this a post war shell.I have 4 different WW2 shells and liners with both front and rear rim seams and all have a SS rim
