Ok, here's a really dumb question (55-gal oil drums)

Have the dimensions for 55-gallon oil drums (or, at least, American ones) changed since WW2? I don't want to assume they haven't before I find a random oil drum today and base a couple of measurements off it...

(n.b. the specific measurement I'm after is the diameter of the circular top/bottom)

Thanks in advance,
