    very nice Nick and in great condition , in the same vein do you have a Korean war cover , the only ones ive seen are in films and i believe they were a light green or canvas colour and thicker than the later ones

    Ive never seen a clear photo of a Marine with a OG cover in Vietnam, only a faded old black & white photo

    the Marine shown here with a M60 has a wet cover , this could make it appear like OG in a B&W photo, his OG utility cotton sateen uniform is also soaking wet

    a faded soaking wet Mitchell cover could appear to be a OG cover if it's soaked and dirty in those old films

    One of Andy's most recent projects was displaying a helmet with one of these covers with a winter fur lined hood underneath... It SCREAMED Korean War deep freeze!

    Ah! My mistake! This is the thread I was thinking of:
    Korean War M1 Covers

    He spoke about the OD covers and then posted a photo of the camo covered helmet with hood underneath.
