  1. With the exception of Spike, Doyler and Doctorofwar, I find the response very rude. I'm no kid, 77 , and have been a member of several collector clubs and am on websites . I've been at this 'Militaria " for 68 years and have several collections. Many of the posts were so rude and dismissive without any other comment, it reminded me of the puffed up "experts" that seem to infect every club organization. Someone would show up to find out information about something and these "Experts" would figuratively spit on the object, kick it around and sneer , to the point the rookie would go away and never come back again. There's a thing called magnanimity which is sorely lacking in many who posted here . I am very dismayed at the way some of you acted . As someone who has been on several collector club boards as well as selling at shows for almost 50 years, I try to treat people decently. When they ask me what I think, I tell them exactly what Doctorofwar said. It could have been there but without provenance , you will never know. Were they used, "YES" as Doyler said, and provided another picture to prove it. This is what's known as Magnanimity , sharing your knowledge, but giving an honest assessment of possible use in the theater . I personally don't care . I plan on keeping it because my son gave it to me. Here's another link and this one has PLASTIC BUTTONS !!! http://quanonline.com/military/military_reference/american/vietnam_uniforms/largeduck.html
  2. Maybe it's your glasses
  3. WOW , first it dismissed as being nothing but a '60,s hunting outfit, junk , trash , worthless , l then "it may have been worn by a few advisors" , and lastly I'm accused of trying to create a "Sales Pitch Thread" . You people are something else !!!!!!!
  4. I know everyone wants to be THE critic, but when I look at the uniform and I look at the picture of the guy in VN instructing a local on the use of the o3A3 . I see the same outfit. Everyone wants to say it's junk and NOT VN issue or use, but I don't see any difference in his and mine , down to the short jacket with the pockets almost to the bottom and the US Army issue buttons. What then did advisors wear???
  5. I guess you missed the WW2 army buttons and the guy in the picture wearing the same short shirt and exact pattern camo. My friend thinks it's the USMC "Frog" pattern. Remember these were advisors that weren't supposed to be there.
  6. My son found this at a garage sale and sent it to me . It looks legit . What do you know about it ? Thanks
  7. Another pic of helmet and liner, BB
