    Theres a slim to no chance this is a repro, this is my third first pattern cover and my fifth usmc m1, NICKD, as for the stitching, there were many manufactures of these, yours looks like an Australian made one used in the Korean war due to it having the EGA, the cover on mine is faded, dingy, and dirty from use, the photo's don't do it justice.
