Here are some of my USAF theater made chevrons.

This first one has a tag from the previous owner saying it was made in Japan. I would guess the back paper is what they were going off of.

Here is a very washed out chevron. I would guess 'Nam era.

The stripes on this one are a lite bluish green. The black background is like a crushed velvet.

This writing is, I believe Chinese - not Japanese. I see no katakana or hiragana writing included. This is all kanji (in Japanese). That doesn't mean the chevron was not made in Japan, but I don't think the newspaper was.
