Has there ever been a story about someone traveling back in time to that particular moment to see how the shield was made? I know it’s counterproductive to the whole shield mythos but just curious.

I don't think so. But a line from Myron MacLain (the metallurgist who created the shield) in CA #303 makes me suspect that maybe a time traveler (or alien or higher power) WAS involved.

Definite story potential. Although the story would have to be worth unveiling the shield’s mystique imo. One that perhaps reveals a bigger purpose for the sheild? One that might introduce a different dynamic/nature to the shield.. Other than that I really don’t see a need to do it.

It would probably be something better dealt with in a miniseries. You know one of those that tells you about the secrets of the Marvel Universe that you never knew about before. And then it just never gets mentioned again.

Then we reference the story only to find out the series occurred in an alternate universe.
