Cap Camouflage Pattern I

Some foreign nation beret that looks like some kind of nylon material? Not VN era though.

I cant see for certain but the stamp appears to be in Vietnamese, so if it is not VN war then it is probably fake rather than foreign.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a thousand pictures!

If you make out what language that is, your eyes are a lot better than mine!

Agreed, it doesn't appear to be original......ripstop nylon-like material.

 

The maker name "QUE-ANH" can be seen in ink, which is a typical Vietnamese beret maker from the period.

I have moved a few berets on over the years but it’s safe to say I found one on nearly every patten from the war

A beret has a specific half silk liner in black with a rough strengthening cotton shaping band that follows a very similar design.
Once observed a correct one you will know It and not be fooled by a copy

The fake berets that have flooded from Vietnam over the last 25 years all have the same drastic flaw.
The little lace at the back
On top is an original Indo China French period beret from US para cloth
It follows the typical French style of the silk lace that hangs from a slot in the rear of the sweat band.
It’s just a sit where the 2 seams meet logicaly at the rear
The Vietnamese copied this in later produced Berets
The copy’s put 2 metal grommets with the lace
This is a no no in real items.
Not the fakes has the metal but real dosnt
A typical faker move to make something better looking than the original was.

Looks like Army aircrew wings on that one beret, that along with the patch means he was probably Air Cav. Very cool!
