Original USMC cover?

Recommended Posts

The cover is an original , the photos are not great tho , it could be a 1953 Usmc camo cover.

Better pics would give you better results

Are there difference between ww2 cover and p.53 cover?

Stitching indicates it's a Blue Anchor cover (Korea). If those markings aren't on a brown-side flap, I'd be concerned.

Many threads on here with extensive research on all types of the USMC covers that where available in the frog skin camo scheme.

 

But as a rule of thumb ,

 

WW2 covers feature an open triangle stitch on the beach side

 

1953 blue anchor covers have the closed stitching on the beachside with a blue anchor stamp on a flap.

 

These are not the only things to look for , then you have cross stitching on the bEach side , the infamous PAC man and his different shapes and then the WW2 Australian made USMC camo.

 

Some fantastic threads on here
