USN on the side below the stiffening cross and a WWII period date on the bottom of the can. These little buggers are rather elusive.

I know exacly what you should look for because I'm the proud owner of a 42 navy can and a 52 navy can the WW2 can is marked with U.S.N on both sides but the 52 is only marked U.S.N on one side.
