Default Green cordura Frog K98 bayonet info please

Hallo,
I found this Frog K98 bayonet in cordura green material.
I kindly ask you for some information, because I have only seen this object in khaki color, while this Frog is green.
Thank you in advance.

Nice EARLY tropical frog. (Early versions are green, later ones khaki).

1940 pattern olive green webbed frog. Nice one. Tan/brown webbing overtook olive in early 1941.

FIRST and the MOST; it's not CORDURA ( cordura is syntetic fiber developed and introduced FAR later after II WW ). If you do not know english language well ( personaly I do not know it very well, as I'm not a native speaker ) or your net dictionery translates it very badly( IMO ) and it has not been fully understandable IMO ( at least not for me the no native, english speakers ) than please use old fashioned, book word dictioneries to write in correct way please.

The item is THICK NATURAL viber webbing is typical for very early period of war , developed for usage in tropical area ( actualy, based on pre I WW , german experience of german central and low Africa colonies , where more tropica rain forests and savannah were the majorities ); in other words early, true DAK frog for bayonet ( made in late 1940 , early 1941, when were replaced by gree/brown/ tan examples ).

Leaving aside the linguistic technical terms, thanks to all. I am satisfied that the piece is good.
