    Hello DMIL members,

    I am hoping someone in this group can help me. I am assisting one of our scientists in tracking down a copy of the following cancelled specification(s), "Zinc chromate primer":

    AN-TT-P-656 (I believe this is the original one)
    AN-TT-656
    AN-P-656

    We specifically need the one from the 1940s. She found this website purporting to sell it: https://global.ihs.com/doc_detail.cfm?document_name=AN-TT-P-656&item_s_key=00160337

    I have searched ASSIST, NTRL, and DTIC but to now avail. The closest I came was this specification in ASSIST, but I think it may be a superseded version: https://quicksearch.dla.mil/qsDocDetails.aspx?ident_number=2546

    I wonder if any of you have access to non-public sources that would carry it without charging a fee?

    I sincerely appreciate any help you can provide.

    Many thanks!
    -Anna

    Contact the ASSIST service desk.  They usually have the old specifications offline.  M - F (Eastern), 215-737-8000 (from the Contact Us page).
