    Default US M-1 sporting a Frogskin camo cover

    Salty Korean War era US M-1 helmet by McCord Radiator with a Firestone P-55 liner..
    It is sporting a 1953 dated green dapple or spot design camouflage cover reversing to a tan/brown variation,
    Nicknamed “frogskin” by many GIs, the pattern consists of a five color green dominant “jungle” camouflage pattern printed on one side, with a three color brown dominant “beach” pattern printed on the opposite side.
    This particular cover was manufactured by Blue Anchor and has been nicely stamped with dual EGA's as can be seen in the images below..

    Always wanted one of these covers, but never felt like paying the price most people were asking! Guess I'll wait for that special deal that fate hopefully has in store for me..
