I have this M1928 rucksack that was redyed dark green. The "US" stamp is still readable but I can not see any manufacturer markings. The pack tail is the original color and dated 1944. Does anyone know who or when the green dying was applied to OD #3 US field gear?

Not sure of when they were dyed ,but the old surplus store in downtown Jacksonville, Fl had 1000's or more packed in wooden wirebound crates stored in the basement. Old surplus purchased in the early 50's. 13 stories full of goodies, sadly torn down for parking garage, much went to the dump.

I'm pretty sure the US military dyed lots of early khaki items green during WW2?

I believe some National Guard units also did this post war before they all got M1944/45 packs.
