Manufacturers ink stamp, "maple leaf" inspection stamp, not sure if anyone else used steel fittings.........

Probably other ways to tell, that's just off the top of my head.

Canadian web equipment can also have a unique color to it.

Thinking they applied that (Blanco substance) on their No4 rifle slings that others could be elaborated on.
Received a few in that condition from Canuk land a few years ago.

Disaster Dog can elaborate fully on Blanco. All his 37 Kit is properly treated as well as his gaiters. I am sure he is the best dressed Enfield collector here in terms of blanco. Its been rumored he is sitting on the last blanco stockpile left on the planet. (y)

But I don’t think they’ve got any in.

Some say that he died of a fever

Blanco is also very common on Brit web gear so its not a certainty though.

I meant in reference to the original dyed color. Canadian web equipment seems to have a rather yellow, "mustard"-y tint.
