It was stamped twice showing that it was manufactured in 1953. This camo cover is in very good solid condition, and can be worn or displayed. There is no dry rot, odors, or smell of smoke on it. There are some tiny holes and some "Nips" in the cloth from use (not from insects or animals eating on it). There are some light stains and some residue from rust.There is one hole on one side that is a "L" shape rip that is approximately 1 inch x 1 inch. All of the cloth is there, it just has never been repaired. I don't clean or modify my any of items in my collection, and this cover comes from my WWII collection of M-1 helmets.
