Original Late-WWII USMC Camouflage Helmet Cover For Sale

Late-WWII USMC Camouflage Helmet Cover

This is an original WWII U.S. Marine Corps camouflage helmet cover. It features the distinctive double-chain center stitching and zig-zag border stitching on the beach side. It is still in its wartime configuration, with no Eagle Globe & Anchor stampings on either side of the cover. One of the flaps is twice marked "F 0022". This variation, without foliage slits, is often referred to by collectors as a 'first pattern' cover, but in actuality was the third type produced, often seen during the fighting on Iwo Jima. This cover is in well-used condition, with rust stains and cuts for a helmet shell's chinstraps to pass through.
