    Default USMC Helmet cover???

    Hello gentlemen,does this helmet cover stand a chance of being genuine?The stitching appears to be "zig zag" on the sand coloured side and straight on the other,which I believe is the correct method,but I am no expert on these US covers! Any help would be appreciated, thanks , Leon.

    i think it dose. all the stiching seems to sit in place for me for a ww2 1st pattern cover. the herringbone stiching on the green side seems ok to. and its missing the extra light brown blob on the sand como side too that some fakes have. this cover looks un used too

    Do you have pictures of the stitching over the top on both sides? That would determine if it is real. I am looking for one of these but haven't been lucky enough to find one without a crazy price
