    Hi James, early ( 1st Gulf war issue) DDPM covers had green cotton labels, then the yellow satin labels, followed by White cotton labels, the last had white nylon labels, sadly there is very little difference in the actual camo pattern, apart from the uber rare Sparse DDPM of course, great addition buddy

    I know exactly what you mean Opex. It's our passion to spend our time researching these kind of things and as you say it benefits us other less informed collector's and I appreciate it massively as I am sure everyone else does. These are very reasons I love being on this forum sharing with and learning from others! Cheers, Sean.

    Hi Sean, it took a lot of research and studying different covers, but at the end of the day if my time and efforts can be shared and used by my fellow collectors, then it is worth all the effort, thanks for the compliments Buddy

    Hi James , as you know I was a Moderator on a Desert specific forum, so my knowledge of all things DDPM is quite good even though I say so myself.

    Now I think your gold satin label is second addition ..meaning late 1991 issue,hope this helps
