Are all Original Type A canvas carrying cases and web magazines pouches with a belt attachment (for L-drum) marked?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Al

h46pedro,

Some are and some aren't. The original Type A cases for the 1921 Model (without compensstor) are usually marked "Mills" or "Rusco." Some later cases (probably Rusco made) are unmarked.

The drum pouches are the same. The early drum pouches, without the shoulder strap, are usually marked "Mills" or "Rusco." Some later drum pouches may be unmarked, although they might be a later OD#3 color, as opposed to the early yellow straw colored canvas.
