    Any Way to Date Swedish M39 Packs?

    I picked these up the other day cheap. Doesn't seem to be any way to date them other than pre 1941 and post 1941. These two are both post 1941 as they have the three crowns instead of a single crown.

    I thought maybe the fabric, rivets, type of straps, etc might be able to date them somewhat. Anyone know anything about them.

    I would guess the tan one is the older of the two but that's just a guess. It has a pair of straps that were sewn into tubes.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.
