I still haven't found out, are we going to pick our own, or are they bundled?

How do you identify the WWII slings?

I was there yesterday and did not see any WWII dated slings. Most are unmarked it seemed. They are in a box bundled with a rubber band. I would wrap them back up if you do um bundle them. I didn't go through all but 15 or 20 and found one mrt 59 markd sling

If the buckle is flat, it is WW2. Post war buckles had a rib on them. Some late war web slings had the year stamped on them.

Based on that all I saw and bought were post war.

Default WWII slings with ribbed keeper? You bet!

Not all WWII slings had the flat keeper. My research has shown that a large proportion of the 1945 slings had the ribbed keeper, which was a light gray parkerized color.

But, don't just take my word for it. Check out Duff's WWII book, page 95, and note the ribbed keepers on an M1C and M1D. The photo is dated January 1945. (Here is a tip to ShooterM1, who originally spotted those slings.)
