Pretty sure the shovel is legit...but the cover is mint...too mint? hanger is not brass, but painted steel(?)

thoughts?

That is a beautiful mint 1943 cover. You can not do better then that. I have had a few in that condition but they are hard to find that clean. Can we get a picture of the front?

Ha- super photo shoot, Ron!! Me likey...

 

Phantom, I've got a couple of "W.L. Dumas" Shovel Covers, and one is as mint as that one. My advice would be to go for it.

the shovel, cover and two canteen sets came home with me...no 41 canteens though ; )

seems the covers go for more than the shovels at times....

Thanks

Five of the covers are made by Dumas.There are some variation in cut or pattern and intresting to compare coming from the same maker.

looks like colors range from a pink to a tan...and can see different patterns or maybe the way they are laid out...and assume they did not make these past 43, due to shovel design change and just so many of the 1910 covers in the system..

 

and a side note...the 1941 canteen...I have several 1918 marked canteens, and many from 42-45...production stopped post WWI 1918 and did not pick up again until 1941?
