I found this in a small pile of new looking covers dated to 1984 at the "surplus" store.  This one has a 1969 contract date.  For 7 bucks, figured I'd take a chance that it was real.  I thought I'd toss it out here for evaluation since I know little about these things.  Poking around the forum didn't clear up my doubts, but did increase my curiosity.  Thanks for any input!

Thanks.  That store has some repro stuff but this seemed OK to me except that it was in such new condition.  I appreciate you taking a look.

I Have seen unopened 1969  boxes of these ERDL covers.

They are all the exact same just like this one.

Due to their limited use they are sadly not really sought after by collectors.

Its worth noting that the ERDL pattern used is a limited section of the entire print omitting some of the classic known shapes.

owen
