    I love those covers. I have 2, for some reason I like the brown cammo the best, but I put one of mine on the green side, just for the contrast, nice covers.

    I kind of favour the 'brown' side out as well, and have yet
    to aquire one - I have a later 1960's type.

    Rich, do you have pots for them to go on ?

    When was the EGA placed on these covers? I heard the covers with EGA are Korean war vintage and not WW2.

    The covers itself mihgt wartime, but the EGA was added post war. Any thougts?

    Cheers,

    as far as ive been able to find out is that yes with the EGA stamped on makes them Korean war era & even though some people believe it may have been during WW2 it has yet to be proven ?
