US M-1 sporting a frogskin cover

Recommended Posts

Mark K

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..

Yes Tony  ....Treat Yourself to another!

It's seems we always want to keep the good items, then sometimes a money problem comes along and we think..."well, need the money sell that! then we do, and later regret it very much.

Best to you and Mark....Let's see your new lid when you get it.
