Here's mine - slightly more used than the photos would appear, made with standard zelt scraps which gives it a lot of character.

Chris,
I believe (at this point) these are early maker variations and not indicative of a timeline of manufacture until we see the tan/brown/ochre webbing introduced in 1941.
The initial 1940...

The first 'bottle green' webbing colour is well known amongst collectors of early tropical equipment.
