    Excellent. OK, that is what I assumed. What timeframe? 1980s?

    Thats the early variant of the shovel cover, attached to fieldbelt or backpack.

    Yep thats the early stamp variant, the newer ones got simplified. Only HBA the eagle and the date in a square.

    This version seems more useful than the common one with the small belt loop.

    As ALEX commented, it most likely attached to a backpack. Also I think Steve will be scratching his head saying ' where do all these variants come from".
