Thought you would enjoy this picture. Shows the green beret in use but sans the PACV wording. Came from an 80s Eyewitness Nam magazine.

As far as looking "too new"... it's just been well cared for. Bullion can escape tarnish if it is kept out of the air. The label is excellent, and as far as I know not one that has been reproduced.

Guys, this beret is real inside and out. I say this because I own one with the ribbon cut because my dad saw combat as the maintenance officer for the 3 Navy PACV's during their second test and eval deployment. We need to draw a clear line between the British-built SRN-5's that the Navy had and the later US built Army ACV's. Perhaps the Army had black berets? I'd like to get in contact with the vet who dropped his beret off at the Bellingham Maritime Museum because I've compiled much data /pictures for a historical website about the 2nd deployment. Mike Granat was the owner up there in Bellingham of that last surviving Navy PACV, which has since been sold to the Yank's Air Museum in Chino Hills, CA. I'm in San Diego, CA
at your service,
Tim Comeau AT1 USN (ret.)
