These frogs are accurately patterned after original examples.  Like the originals, the reproductions are made with heavy leather, rough side out (exdept the Bavarian type, which is smooth-side out), solid steel rivets, and fit the bayonet scabbards tightly.
I normally make these with an oil finish which gives them a mellow brown color.  I can also dye them darker, as shown in some of the pics.

Detail pics show a 98-05 reproduction side-by-side with the original on which it was based. 
original stamped "Feldmann Co. 1917 Froangen (?)".
