It's the later parkerised 5 hole ones that I got. They are total sh*te! 
They are not the same steel as the ones in your photo Terrylee. As you can see in Shamu's photo above; they are thicker metal with no real spring in it at all. I did have a go at improving one by grinding and polish away the inner surface with a dremel. To be honest it was not worth the effort.  
Luckily I know have enough proper MkIV ones of WWII production.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I'm not sure if they were originally Italian or Greek, but one of the 2. They can usually be ID'd by the thickness, roughness, & difficulty loading them.  Frequently the have the VII mark & a couple f (apparently) random letters stamped in them.
