Ever saw a Russian Lend-Lease 5-cell TSMG pouch in transitional colors?

Found this one in a pile of 100 plus pouches sold by an Eastern European dealer. The US marking is fake, but I never saw a 5-cell with these colors so I bought it just for the heck of it.

Fake US, no markings inside the belt loop.

Very cool find! Are there green 5 cell pouches? I don't think I have ever seen one.

You'll have to take a look inside the big loop were the pistol belt sides threw for any manufacturing ink stamp?

Sure looks like a late War US military canvas made piece. I have a 1945 Harian transitional made cartridge belt has exactly the same colors.

Cool find!
