    theres been much speculation as to whether the Aussies made USMC covers for US use but it still has not been 100% confirmed that they did & that all so called Aussie made USMC covers are seen as fakes

    If I remember correctly, the stitching on the central seams was made on one machine which had two needles, so a way to judge a cover is to look for perfectly parallel rows of stitching which all originals will have.

    WW2 USMC covers were never marked or stamped in anyway they only started doing this when they made the post war 1950's version.
